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

Alongside our General Collection, we have separate catalogues for each of the following areas:

Anarchism, Green Issues, Edinburgh, Women’s History, Anti-Militarism, Foreign Language, 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.
