We are delighted to announce that the Bulletin of the John Rylands University Library of Manchester will be published by Manchester University Press from 2014. As part of this move, the journal's title has been changed to Bulletin of the John Rylands Library.

Established in 1903, the journal publishes peer-reviewed articles that showcase the Special Collections of The John Rylands Library, one of the finest collections of rare books, manuscripts and archives in the world. The manuscript and printed collections span five millennia and cover a wide range of subjects in more than fifty languages, including theology and philosophy; literature, drama and music; art and archaeology; science and medicine; economic, social, political, religious and military history; travel and exploration. The collections also contain the archives of companies, business associations, trade unions, charities, social organizations and religious institutions, as well as landed families. Articles are broad ranging and multi-disciplinary, enhancing the scholarship and understanding of the collections. Full length articles as well as short review pieces and notes on particular collections, exhibitions and recent acquisitions are welcome. Articles not focused directly on the collections but of general relevance to the John Rylands Library as well as themed issues that situate research on the collections within different humanities disciplines will be published occasionally.

Forthcoming themed issues:

Volume 90, Issue 2, Autumn 2014: Writ From the Heart?: Women’s Life Writing in the Long Eighteenth Century
