Liverpool Record Office Collection Development Policy

The Record Office based in Central Library preserves and provides access to a large and diverse collection of archives that evidence life in Liverpool, both past and present.

We aim to continue to collect archives and raise awareness of the collections and their significance as primary source material evidencing both known and unknown histories of Liverpool.

The service has a repository which meets exacting national and European standards for long-term secure storage and preservation of archives.

This policy sets out statutory obligations, what will be collected, and how it will be collected and publicised.
