We provide several valuable resources, both to members and others. We produce a number of our own publications and help to publish others in partnership with organisations such as Cambridge University Press, Edinburgh University Press and Microform Academic Publishers. We also provide information about student exchange programmes at UK universities and have developed a database of United States newspaper holding in UK institutions.
