Archive Services

Archive Services collect and preserve records created by the University and its predecessors in order to make them accessible for use both now and in the future.

We aim to provide the corporate memory of the University, and act as the central point of information about its history. We welcome enquiries from students, staff and the wider community. We are actively building the collections by means of records transfers from staff and gifts and deposits from outside the University, so please do contact us if you have material which you think might be of interest.

These pages contain information about what we have - the Archive Holdings - and how you can access the records.

The University's Records Manager also works in Archive Services. Universities are faced with all kinds of accountability and compliance issues and good record keeping is very important. The Records Manager's job is to promote best practice and advise on new legal and technical developments.

Records Management advice, assistance and training is available to all University staff. Contact Archive Services for more information.
