Industry Archive & Document Storage

The Spenceley Archive offers a repository for collections on topics of industrial, scientific and engineering importance.

The Spenceley Archive already houses several collections including:

  • BISRA – British Iron & Steel Research Association documentation
  • IEE Summer Meetings on History of Electrical Engineering
  • British Steel
  • Corus
  • Tata Steel Archives Storage

All files, documents and archive boxes are individually coded and stored securely in the Spenceley Archive. An open racking system is used to allow easy access. Digital records can also be stored electronically.
