There are two sets of templates for documents, letters and presentations:
- The University of Manchester Library. (The word ‘Library’ does not appear in the logo.) For use by colleagues at all sites, except:
- John Rylands Research Institute and Library. For use only by colleagues whose work relates exclusively to the John Rylands Research Institute and Library.

Using the templates
When using Word templates, the header (and footer, if applicable) areas appear faded on screen and in Print Preview; this is not how they will appear on the printed (or as a PDF) document.
Do not try to change the header or footer sections of the templates in Word; these are our official details. If you need to add different contact details, do so in the text area of the document.
If printing on a colour printer, check that the colour matches the view you see on screen. If it does not, obtain copies of letter-headed paper from the Librarian’s Office, or consider printing in black and white.
