Manchester was the world’s first industrialised city, and known for its art, architecture, and music scene, its scientific and engineering innovations, its sports clubs and its transport connections. Manchester was the site of the world's first railway station and is where scientists first split the atom and developed the first computer. Manchester is also where Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels wrote the Communist Manifesto and where the Trades Union Congress was established.

This handbook describes the major collections of libraries, archives, and museums where you can research culture, art, and design. It will allow you to explore the city more fully and direct you to the most appropriate places to suit your research needs.

Special features include:
a city-wide map
at-a-glance navigation icons
a time-saving index to collections
a glimpse into each site with full-colour images
