The IOE Library (Newsam Library & Archives) is made up of a number of education collections. The Main Collection on level 5 is the core collection of education publications; the Comparative Collection on level 3 is a smaller and more selective collection of education in other countries and regions. There are a number of additional physical and electronic collections held in the library. These holdings form part of what is the largest national collection of education materials available to researchers.
