The Centre also houses the books and pamphlets owned by Paul Joyce concerning the work of G.E. Street and other Victorian churches. This collection contains some rare and hard to find publications and is in the process of being added to the library catalogue.

The Paul Joyce Archive is the second architectural archive acquired by the Centre, joining the Dennis Sharp Archive, acquired in 2013.
