After many months of hard work, we are delighted to officially announce the launch of the Highland Archive Service online catalogue.
Until now, researchers wishing to find out more about our holdings have had to rely on printed catalogues available in our searchrooms, with our digital catalogue accessible only to staff.
Now our extensive archive catalogue can be explored online, opening up our fantastic and varied collections to the world like never before.
The catalogue contains nearly 100,000 descriptions of archives and library holdings held in our four Archive Centres in Inverness, Portree, Fort William and Wick and it will be continually added to, with new content added on a monthly basis. You can search by text, reference number or Archive Centre to help you find entries relating to the subject you’re interested in, and once you have found records you would like to view, you can contact the relevant Archive Centre about accessing them – either by booking an appointment to view them or by a member of staff conducting a remote enquiry on your behalf.
For information on the catalogue contents and searches, see the top right hand menu on the site.
We hope you enjoy searching the catalogues, and would welcome your feedback on the layout and content available.
