The best in contemporary literature.
Located in the Gladstone Room (open to residents and Friends of Gladstone's Library), the Francis Collection complements both the literature collection (found in classmark 'R') in the main library and the West Collection. Frequently updated, the Francis Collection is our most up-to-date collection of contemporary literature, featuring poetry, drama, biography and fiction from the 1990s onwards. All the publications of our Writers in Residence can be found in this classmark. Look for classmark FRAN.
