Archives for educational and professional uses

Can I do academic research?

Yes, we provide information to support academic research and for independent research.

Our archive collections cover a wide range of subjects and have lots of uses for research. Archives can be used as source material for further and higher education research and for the research of theses and books. They can also provide inspiration for creative writing and arts.

You can find out more about our collections by searching our online catalogue.

Can archives help me get legal evidence?

Archives are kept because they provide evidence of the past such as decisions made by local authorities, or how the landscape looked. This information can be used to prove facts and even as legal evidence. We have a lot of records about ownership of property such as the East Riding Register of Deeds.

The staff do not give legal advice but they are there to help you find documents in the collections.
