Managing marketing and communications records
This section describes the way the organisation communicates both internally and externally amongst staff, students, partners and the public. This includes a large set of prospectuses detailing the kind of courses that could be studied, copies of the research reports used to publicise ongoing work by academics, both produced annually. There is also a series of promotional material and ephemera sampled from material across the university (Course and School specific material can be found under each School in the Teaching and Learning section HUD/TC

There is also a wide ranging set of newspaper cuttings dating back to the late 19th century covering both the academic and social life of the institution, and a set of staff newsletters dating back to the mid-60s.
