Who can use Bangor University Archives ?

The Archives Department is open to all researchers – academics, students and the general public.

I’ve found an entry on the online catalogue and now would like to see the item. What is the procedure ?

The holdings of the Archive can only be accessed in person in the Reading Room of the Archives Department. For more information about our opening hours, access arrangements and details of our services and facilities, please check our website http://www.bangor.ac.uk/archives/

Do I need to make an appointment to visit the Archives ?

There is usually no need to make an appointment, although it is advisable to telephone or e-mail beforehand if travelling any distance.

Why can’t I see images of the documents in the catalogue ?

The catalogue contains written descriptions of the documents in our archive and not digitised images from the collection.

How can I order reproductions of the original material ?

A limited number of photocopies and / or scans of documents can be ordered, subject to the approval of the Archivist.

Why can’t I find what I’m looking for ?

Searching the database will only find the exact words used in the catalogue, so if you haven’t found what you wanted it’s often best to try other related terms.

People’s names and place names may also vary in spelling and so you may need to try searching for alternative spellings in order to find all the relevant records.

Remember that only a small percentage of the holdings of the Archives are accessible via this catalogue at present. Please contact the Archives directly if you would like further details of our collections. Alternatively, you can search through the majority of our holdings via the Archives Wales http://archives.wales/ and Archives Hub http://archiveshub.ac.uk websites.
