Welcome to the online catalogue for UCL’s archives and manuscripts

Here you will find catalogues for collections held across:

  • UCL Special Collections comprising UCL Archives, UCL Records and the Institute of Education (IOE);
  • School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES);
  • Queen Square Archives comprising the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (UCLH) and UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology.

Please contact us to make an appointment or to discuss uncatalogued material.

Please note: we hold collections that document the changing attitudes to a wide range of subjects including science, education and social history. Due to the content of these collections, the catalogue includes outdated terms that can cause offence. Where these terms appear, it is in the interest of historical accuracy and does not reflect the views or opinions of UCL or our staff.
