University of Edinburgh University of Edinburgh Archive and Manuscript Collections

Special Collections : Archives Catalogues & Resources

The student records held by Edinburgh University Archives hold content of immense value for the amateur and professional researcher alike. While most enquiries relating to these records are of a genealogical or biographical nature, there remains significant potential for statistical analysis of the data they contain for historical, sociological and other research.

With generous funding from both General Council and the Friends of Edinburgh University Library, a scoping project has been undertaken and report submitted which will inform the next stages. While the entire report cannot be shared online, the results of the records survey can.

We are currently looking at what we might do next to move HARR to the next phase.
