University of Sussex Special Collections and Mass Observation Archive Blog

Showcasing our archives, collections, activities and projects

We are at The Keep!





We did it! We are finally at The Keep! All our archives, collections and staff have moved in and now you can come and visit us! Take a look at The Keep’s website for more details about how to do so. I particularly recommend that you read the page about visiting The Keep as this talks you through the registration and booking process.

We hope you like The Keep and enjoy using the facilities. We (and our Keep colleagues) have worked really hard to get here. We look forward to hearing your feedback about it.

The Keep opened to the public on Tuesday.  Since, then over 180 documents have been issued to researchers in our new reading room.  The first Mass Observation document to be issued was a report about women drinkers in pubs  in the 1940s, while Special Collection’s Rosey Pool collection has been made use of.

We hope to see you at The Keep soon!
