About Local Studies
We have great resources for local studies and family history, the largest collection of local and family history material in the North East. And we collect current local material. Everyone is welcome to visit us and look at any of the collection but, as many items are rare or irreplaceable, some of the collection is not on public display. To see anything, just make your selection from our catalogues or ask a member of staff.
