Dundee University Archive

Dundee Archive Services

The University of Dundee Archive is open to anyone who wishes to research Dundee and the surrounding area.

The Archive holds records on many aspects of Dundee, ranging from the city’s rise in the jute industry, to the city’s health and education records, to the evolving culture. There are many examples of art, literature and scientific inventions worldwide that can be traced to Dundee.
