    We are the official repository for the historic records of the University of Gloucestershire and also house an eclectic mix of several special collections relating to Gloucestershire and beyond.

    Along with the University Archive collection, we are custodians of the Bristol & Gloucestershire Archaeological Society Library which offers a fine selection of books and journals on subjects such as archaeology, history, geography and architecture to name a few. We curate and maintain the Gloucestershire Poets, Writers and Artists Collection, which includes works and artifacts relating to the Dymock Poets, Whittington Press, U.A. Fanthorpe and James Elroy Flecker. We are also custodians of the Triggs Reser (Banjo) Collection and the Local Heritage Initiative archive.
