The Borthwick Institute for Archives is one of the biggest archive repositories outside London. During our 50 year history we have collected archives from all around the world, from the 12th century to the present day. Every year we welcome thousands of visitors to use our archive materials.
In January 2005 we opened to the public in a new, purpose-built building, situated adjacent to the JB Morrell Library on the University of York's Heslington campus. This new building was made possible due to a generous grant of £4.4 million by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
We can provide assistance in a number of ways. If you would like to find out about our holdings please see our catalogues page. If you wish to visit us in person please read our visiting us page. If you would like to see how we can help you by post or the internet please see our document copying and research support pages.
