Our expert team manages one of Scotland’s national collections with physical archives dating from the 17th century to the present day, and digital archives created since the latter part of the 20th century, as well as an extensive library. The collection focusses on Scotland’s architecture, archaeology and the built and marine environments, and is formed by the work of HES (and predecessors) and many individuals and groups in Scotland and the UK who actively create these records.

We are an Accredited Archives Service and work to ensure that our collections are cared for and accessible to the public, both physically and digitally. We are also responsible for the delivery of a number of online services, such as Canmore, Scran and Britain from Above, and operate a Search Room for public research in John Sinclair House.

We have a number of teams within the Department: Archives, Digital Repository, Conservation, Acquisitions and Loans, Library, and Archive and Online Engagement. All work closely together to provide a seamless archive service for HES.
