Political Archives

Political archives containing manuscripts, books, photographs, film, sound recordings, digital files, and ephemera represent the careers and legacies of politicians, parties and Members of Parliament...

Correspondence, campaign materials, minutes, press cuttings, memoranda, reports, papers, audio and video recordings, and many other formats of materials historically document the complete working of individuals and political parties. These archives are valuable sources of academic research, particularly for historians interested in twentieth century economic, social and political history.

SDS Heritage has the expertise and facilities to competently scan and convert this material into a cohesive digital archive. Our bespoke database document management systems provide researchers with search tools to help facilitate retrieval and collation of such information. We can provide standalone or online (secured or public access) solutions, the latter of which can be combined into an existing web site if required.
