The Autonomous Archive

Based here at ACE, the archive is a broad collection of material from the radical left. You can access the archive during normal opening hours, by simply asking a volunteer for access. Our catalogues can be viewed at ACE or by clicking on the download links below. People are welcome to request access to the archive outside of opening hours, however this is subject to volunteer availability.

Alongside our General Catalogue, we have separate catalogues on different areas, including:

Anarchism, Green Issues, Edinburgh, Women’s History, Anti-Militarism, Foreign Languages, and Posters & Graphics.

We hope to have all our catalogues online soon. If you’d like to help with the cataloguing process and digitisation of our archive please get in touch.

Archive material cannot be removed from ACE. However, we allow photocopies, scans and photographs of any material of interest.
