The Royal Berkshire Archives produces a number of documents which provide more information about our services. This is an important part of making us accountable both to local Council Tax payers and to the wider world.

The basic outline of our aims is that we seek to:

  • Acquire documentary material relating to Berkshire
  • Provide curatorial care to ensure the preservation of this material
  • Provide access to the public and encourage research
  • Promote an awareness of the county‚Äôs past

We are run as a joint service of the six district Councils in Berkshire. We have a joint agreement, which provides for us to deliver the service against a specification. It also obliges us to create policies saying how we will deliver the specification.
