ABSTRACT
The article presents news about Trades Union Congress (TUC) Library and John Burns Collection at the University of London Library. In 1996, the TUC decided to close its library and to transfer the collections on permanent loan to the University of North London. The University will maintain the identity and integrity of the library and has the long-term capacity to store, protect, staff and academically exploit collections. The TUC Library was established in 1922 for the use of the TUC and affiliated unions, but its specialization has led to its parallel development as a major research library in the social sciences. The core areas of the main collection are reference and historical works on the trade union movement, union publications from Great Britain and overseas, documents relating to working conditions and industrial relations in various industries, and material collected from the various campaigns and policy areas in which the TUC has been involved since its foundation. The John Burns Collection will continue to have an individual identity, while enjoying close proximity to complementary material, especially the Goldsmiths' Library of Economic Literature, the library of the Family Welfare Association and the Booth family correspondence.
