Archives and manuscripts: catalogues and databases

These catalogues and databases provide a guide to the archives held by the Special Collections Division and detailed descriptions of some of the principal collections.

The surveys of Jewish archives in the UK and Ireland and of the papers of senior UK defence personnel provide a wider conspectus of archive holdings in two of the main areas where the Division collects archival materials.

For more information about the University of Southampton's collections, please follow the link to the Division's web pages. Information on arrangements for visiting the Special Collections can be found at: access arrangements. For enquiries, please e-mail

The detailed catalogue databases are the results of long-term cataloguing projects: new data are added as work progresses.
