Our Digital Archive
Digitisation enables us to do two very important things, preserve by making a digital copy and make accessible by providing on-line access to a global audience. Therefore in the coming years we are committed to making important collections available on-line, to be used and enjoyed by all. A selection – a small quantity - of the Archives important and most requested collections and records have been digitised and are available on-line. Digitisation is very expensive, and it will take many years before we have a comprehensive selection available in this way. Researchers are advised to consult each collection’s descriptive list to learn about its content. Alternatively consult other finding aids, such as the on-line catalogue, which is designed to provide visitors to our web-site the opportunity to find out more about our holdings. Due to their size some items may take a short while to download. All items are in adobe acrobat (PDF) format.
