Links to Brunel Resources

Although the University is named after Isambard Kingdom Brunel, we do not hold anything of research interest such as letters or other personal documents, and no plans of bridges, railways, tunnels or ships designed by him.

We do hold the reproduction rights to most of the illustrations in Patrick Beaver's book on the Great Eastern The Big Ship which has been out of print since 1969. Any requests for permission to use these in books, films etc should be addressed to the University Library.

The Library also houses a Transport History Collection. This is one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of books, journals, maps and photographs on railway history in the country. The Collection is now located on the Runnymede campus. For further details, please contact the Special Collections Librarian.
