Broadsides were originally single sheets of paper, printed on one side only, designed to be read unfolded and posted up in public places. At first they were used for the printing of royal proclamations, acts, news, and official notices. Later they became a vehicle for political agitation, such as ballads and speeches.Some broadsides in the library collections have been given a broadside reference number (eg. F1825/15) but, instead of being in the sequence of loose broadsides in the cabinets, they are located in a volume (eg. BR F 942.7389 SC13). The Dewey number of the volume is noted in the catalogue and also on cardboard markers in the cabinets. All of the volumes are listed below:Archives 324.4273 S3Archives BR f 331.881772 Sc1Archives 352.7 M5Archives BR q 942.72 L28Archives BR ff 942.72 S176Local Studies f 337 A5Local Studies ff 337 A6Local Studies BR ff 337 F18Local Studies 343.1 Bu4Local Studies BR ff 942.72 L15Local Studies ff 942.72 L230Local Studies BR ff 942.7359 M11Local Studies ff 942.7389 H15 (Harland Scrapbook)Local Studies f 942.7389 M1Local Studies f 942.7389 M442Local Studies BR ff 942.7389 Sc13
