Frequently asked questions

Leeds Cave Club in the early 1930s

Does the online catalogue contain all the material in your collections?

The online catalogue covers approximately 10 per cent of the collection at present. This will be regularly updated as new catalogues are validated and published. The remainder of the collection is accessible via direct contact with the BGS Archivist.

Why can’t I see images of the documents in the catalogue?

The catalogue contains written descriptions of the documents in our archive and not digitised images from the collection (except in a few instances). It is hoped that more images will be added as the number of records on the database increases.

What do I need to do if I want to visit BGS Archives and look at original material in your collections?

Contact the BGS Archivist to arrange a visit.
