Hampshire Archives and Local Studies

Our mission

To collect, safeguard, share and celebrate Hampshire’s rich archival heritage and local studies for today’s and tomorrow’s people and communities and to support Hampshire County Council’s effective business delivery through managing its records.

We are part of Hampshire County Council's Culture, Communities and Business Services department and one of the busiest archive services in the country with top, 4-star status in the national assessment of local authority archives services.

We set high standards and regularly monitor our performance against our published targets. A summary of how we have performed and how we have used our resources is published annually in the report ' 'How We Did'.

We aim to continuously improve our service and welcome comments and suggestions and whether you think we are making good use of our resources. You can either write a review for online publication or contact us with your feedback.
