Abstract: The aim of this study is to investigate the growth and management of the D.H. Lawrence collection held in the Manuscript and Special collections department at the Hallward Library, University of Nottingham. This study will examine four main areas of the Lawrence collection and its actual management. The study will first give an account of the collections history and growth in order to give the reader an insight into the collection itself. The study will then examine the importance of public relations in securing acquisitions and how the department has dealt with this expanding collection. A further area to be examined will be the financing and budgeting of the collection as well as the departments' acquisition policy with particular reference to gifts, exchanges and endowments. The D.H. Lawrence cataloguing and retrieving systems in recent years have undergone considerable change, this study will examine carefully the reasons why there was a need for change and how these systems have been introduced and the consequences for the collection and department as a whole. Finally, aspects of conservation, preservation and security of the Lawrence collection will be investigated, examining managerial responses to the problems encountered. To conclude an overall examination of the collection management will be discussed as well as the future prospects of the D.H. Lawrence Manuscript and Special Collection.
