The Folklore Library and Archive


The remit of the Folklore Library and Archive is to collect, preserve and make freely available for education and research, folklore materials in all forms.

We hold physical and born digital materials including image archives, audio visual materials, a print reference library, document archives and physical artefacts relating to traditional customs and beliefs.

The Folklore Library and Archive is a registered charity (No. 1203418). Our Patron is Michael Rosen.

Many of our special collections are of international significance but we are also home to the Devonshire Folklore Collection which has a focus on collecting and preserving material related to the county where we are based, including reminiscence interviews, documents and books.
