Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions to provide some further information about the Archives service. This will be added to over time and if you would like to submit a question to be included, please get in touch. 

An Archive refers to a collection of records or documents that have enduring value as evidence of, and which contain information about, an activity or event that has occurred. The word ‘Archive’ also refers to the institution responsible for acquiring, preserving and making available archival materials, so it is synonymous with the building that houses such collections.
