Archival Information

Archival history:

Before its move to the Docklands Campus, the uncatalogued and unsorted institutional archive was housed in UEL's Barking Campus and an external store. When the Barking Campus closed in 2006, the material which was held onsite was transferred, however the external store material was not and as a consequence is lost. The extant material is therefore of a very patchy nature, particularly as there has never been a policy to actively collect records relating to the University. The majority of the collection derives from material which has been sent to the library over the years.

Immediate source of acquisition:

Transferred from the library at UEL's Barking Campus in 2006.

Allied Materials

Related material:

UEL archive also holds some records of the North East London Polytechnic, later Polytechnic of East London, 1970-1992.
