Monumental Brass Society

MBS Malcolm Norris Research Centre

In a major initiative in 1995 the Society entered into an agreement with the University of Birmingham for the establishment of a research centre for the Society. By the terms of the agreement, the Society is committed to placing its collections of rubbings on deposit in the University Library as the nucleus of a major research collection for the study of brasses and incised slabs. The process of depositing and cataloguing the rubbings is well advanced and it is planned to put the catalogue
on-line.

The Society’s archives and collection of books has also been deposited.

Members of the Society are entitled to make use of the collections. Anyone who wishes to gain access should contact the Birmingham University Library Admissions Office to arrange for a reader’s ticket (switchboard number 0121 414 3344).

An article on the centre is in The Heslopian No. 1 (University of Birmingham Information Services, 2003), pp.14-16.
