Giving financial support

The Middle East Centre Archive provides a unique window into the past, capturing the diversity and richness of life in a rapidly changing Middle East. The Archive’s holdings form a vast treasure trove of the primary source material necessary for historians to write their histories of the Middle East. Without such primary source material the past cannot be examined or questioned and society is enriched by the heritage, identity and memory embodied by Archives. Supporting the Archive financially will ensure the continued success of the Archive in preserving and making available to research the material entrusted to its care.

Donations to the Archive will support the conservation of fragile and damaged items, as well as funding the purchase of archival boxes, folders and conservation packaging.

Donations will also support enhancing access to the Archive through funding cataloguing, digitisation work and increasing online resources.
