Archives and Special Collections

WHELF has an Archives & Special Collections Group which includes representatives from most of the higher education institutions in Wales. The purpose of the Group is to provide WHELF University and NLW Librarians and their operational nominees with a forum:

  • To work collaboratively on shared projects
  • To identify joint funding activities
  • To share outcomes
  • To collaborate on promotion and raising awareness of archives and special collections
  • To present issues for discussion to WHELF.
