The Miners' Library hold collections relevant to the social and cultural histories of industrial South Wales. Key periods covered by our collection include the Spanish Civil War, the nationalisation of coal and the 1984-5 strike. Our holdings on these subjects span various resources, including books, pamphlets, audio recordings and transcripts. Students, staff, researchers and members of the public are welcome to get in touch with areas of interest and we will source our collections for the most relevant material.
The South Wales Coalfield Collection website lists items by project and topic. The Coalfield Web Materials site allows you to search the items on our catalogue and those belonging to the Richard Burton Archives.
