Searching for Archives and Manuscripts

The Archives has an online catalogue to enable users to search through thousands of descriptions of individual manuscripts held at the University.

Although the database contains thousands of descriptions, we urge users to keep in mind that the catalogue is very much a work in progress. Although new data is added on a regular basis, information about some of our collection is not yet available here. Click here for a list of the catalogues that are available online.

The Archives Hub and Archives Wales both have information on all our Archives Collections and a great percentage of our General Collection. The information, at present, is at collection level, although requests for further details or item level descriptions can be made to the Department. See the Contact Us page.

Collection level descriptions of the Archives Collections are available on the Library On-line catalogue. When conducting a search, remember to specify that you are searching the catalogue of The Bangor University Archives Collection only.

There is also a card catalogue in the reading room that serves as a guide to all Special and General Collections. It is arranged into personal, subject and place names. New readers wishing to consult the card index can ask for guidance from the Archives staff.
