Welcome to Goldsmiths Archives Catalogue

Goldsmiths Special Collections cover a range of 20th-century and contemporary creative and performing arts, humanities, and social sciences. The collections include image, sound and material object collections as well as printed matter, archives and ephemera.

The collections support Goldsmiths' research profile and the qualities of complexity, diversity, individuality and radical thinking upon which it is based.

Materials can be consulted in our Special Collections reading room in the Library where they are made available for research at all levels. The collections are also used to support events such as concerts, conferences, performances, screenings, exhibitions and artist residencies.

See the Special Collections web pages for more information and contact details.
