Collections and catalogues

Nottinghamshire Archives holds more than 4 million documents.

Documents are grouped together according to the person or organisation that created them. A group of documents is called a collection.

So that depositors, archives staff and researchers know what is held at the Archives, we compile lists or catalogues of the documents in each collection.

Summary guide to archive holdings

Each collection of documents held at Nottinghamshire Archives is grouped together into one of 20 archive groups.
