Special Collections Events & Exhibitions

Special Collections, SOAS Library organises regular events and exhibitions aimed at raising awareness of the value and diversity of our rich and unique collections. 

We hold regular Special Collections Open Days, displaying a showcase of our material and offering staff and students an opportunity to participate in a behind-the-scenes tour of the archive and discover how our collections are stored.

A selection of notable material from our collections is on permanent display as part of the Objects of Instruction: Treasures of SOAS exhibition at the Foyle Special Collections Gallery, Brunei Gallery, SOAS, which plays a vital part in teaching and cultural engagement programmes at SOAS.   

We also hold frequent displays of material from our collections on particular themes or subjects; as well as regularly contributing archives, manuscripts and rare books towards national and international exhibitions.
