Storysacks and suitcases of history

 These items can be found in UEA Library Search by looking for either 'suitcase' or 'storysack' as a title search. Some of these items are housed in the Archives because they contain either genuine historical artefacts or many small items considered too vulnerable for open access. These items must be requested in advance at the Library Helpdesk.
