About the Archive

The Guardian News & Media Archive, which is owned by the Guardian Foundation, preserves and promotes the histories and values of the Guardian and the Observer newspapers and websites through collecting, cataloguing and making accessible material that provides an accurate and comprehensive history of the papers. Formerly part of the Newsroom, the Guardian and Observer archive and visitor centre in Farringdon Road, the archive is now held at GNM's head office in King's Cross, London.

Established in 2002, the archive's aim is to collect and preserve original documents that record the stories behind the Guardian and the Observer. As well as the official papers of the organisations the archive actively seeks to acquire material from people who have been associated with the papers. Our collections contain correspondence, diaries, notebooks, original cartoons, oral history recordings and extensive photographic libraries.
