About Local Studies
Local Studies form a single department within the Library Service. The department's main concern is the documentation of the borough from the earliest times to the present day, and so it collects, preserves, and provides access to a comprehensive collection of historical and contemporary sources relating to the town of Doncaster, its metropolitan district, and some adjacent areas. Its staff have a wide range of expertise in the interpretation of these sources and are always ready to lend whatever assistance the researcher might require, regardless of subject matter. Books, archival items and other source materials are produced on demand, without need of prior booking - although pre-booking of seats in both sections of the department is recommended.
