Welcome to SOAS Archives Catalogue

The Archive Catalogue is an online finding aid to the archives held at Archives & Special Collections, SOAS Library, University of London.

Collections include the archives of a number of British missionary societies (as well as the personal papers of individual missionaries), NGOs and pressure groups, significant holdings of business archives relating to East Asia, and African language and literature material.

Furthermore many personal papers of individuals (including the archives of scholars, writers and travellers) important to the study of Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, the Americas, the Caribbean, the South Pacific and Australasia are held here at SOAS.

Collection level descriptions are available for all of our catalogued material, with many entries having more detailed information as well. However, some detailed guides to collections are only available in hardcopy and can be consulted in the Special Collections Reading Room.

Currently the online Archive Catalogue does not include details of the important collections of foreign language manuscripts we hold but information regarding these is available in the Special Collections Reading Room

Information on rare books and thesis can be found on the Library Catalogue.

Please be aware that the Archive Catalogue does not include digitised images of any of our holdings. For information on what digitised material is available please see Our Collections on the Archives & Special Collections webpage.
