Archives and Special Collections

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 has been awarded accredited status and is now an Accredited Archive Service.

The Accreditation Panel, which made the award, commended the transformative progress of the service in recent years, reflecting sustained investment and effective management, maximising use of its resources. They praised the forward-looking approach of the service and look forward to its continued success.
