Institute Archive

The aim of the Institute Archive is to collect and preserve Institute records and information of permanent historical value. The material in the Institute Archive dates back to 1971 when the College first opened its doors and it includes material such as: course records, teaching and research material, published books and papers including news items, personal and professional correspondence, annual reports, photographs, lecture notes, awards and events.

MultiSearch, the library discovery service, which discovers content from the library catalogue and databases, can also retrieve results from the DkIT Archive. Please enter your search term above. 

Holdings in the Archive are interesting in their historical content but not all records are complete; the Archive is a work in progress. We rely on and welcome all donations of material to the Archives. Terms and conditions will apply to Archive donations. All queries should be directed to
