Library templates

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.

Templates: The University of Manchester Library

Templates: 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.
