ULITA joins University of Leeds Special Collections

Later this year ULITA – an Archive of International Textiles, currently under the School of Design, is integrating with University of Leeds Special Collections and Galleries. This transfer will enhance access to the collection and strengthen the ongoing learning and events programmes.

A new textile exhibition curated from the collection will open at The Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery in September 2019, accompanied by an events programme. The opening dates and further programme information will be announced soon.

St Wilfred’s Chapel will continue to house the collection until further notice. Research visits to the archive are operating by appointment as usual. The exhibition area in the chapel is no longer open for visits.

Changes to the mailing list and website

From April, news, exhibition and events information will be shared through Leeds University Library Galleries’ monthly newsletter. If you would like to receive updates please sign up to the Leeds University Library Galleries mailing list.

Details of the collection are being moved across to the University of Leeds Special Collections website.

If you have any questions please email ulita@leeds.ac.uk.
