Archives and Special Collections

THE ARCHIVES WILL BE CLOSED FOR 2 WEEKS OVER THE SUMMER PERIOD, BETWEEN THE 30TH OF JULY AND THE 10TH OF AUGUST 2018.

Welcome to the Archives and Special Collections which forms part of the Library and Archives Service at Bangor University.

We are responsible for the collection and long-term preservation of manuscripts, archival collections and a diverse range of rare books and printed material.

Our aim is to ensure that our resources are accessible to all researchers, free of charge. We actively promote these collections as valuable research and learning tools and engage the wider community in our activities as well as the staff and students within the University.

Our collections are open to the public and can be consulted at the Archives and Special Collections which is located in the Main Arts building at Bangor University. The repository comprises of a search room for quiet study and an education room for group visits.

The Archives and Special Collections are an Accredited Archive Service.

BUILDING WORK

Over the next few weeks “Harriet Lee Building and Renovation Ltd” will be building a ramp outside the Archives and Special Collections to improve access.

It is possible that on some days, researchers will not be able to gain entry to the Archives via the usual outer door; however, we are still open.

Those wishing to access the Archives can gain entry via the Main Library – just go to the main desk and ask the staff for help.
