The North Grey Literature Collection holds the hard copy grey literature collection of the former North West Grey Literature Service. It is collecting an increasing range of electronic Grey Literature relating to health and public health in the North of England. The collection is funded by the North Health Care Libraries Unit and delivered by Stockport Foundation NHS Trust.

"Grey literature stands for manifold document types produced on all levels of government, academics, business and industry in print and electronic formats that are protected by intellectual property rights, of sufficient quality to be collected and preserved by library holdings or institutional repositories, but not controlled by commercial publishers i.e., where publishing is not the primary activity of the producing body."
