The Edge Hill University archive is the repository for the print and visual history of the institution from its foundation.

The University originated as Edge Hill College in 1885 in Liverpool and the archive is a significant legacy for the history of teacher training and women’s education.

The archive works with the alumni of the University to promote the collection to past students and welcomes additions for consideration from this source.

The archive manages enquiries and makes material available for use Monday – Friday 9.00am- 17.00pm.

All enquiries should be sent to lsarchives@edgehill.ac.uk.
