Catalogues

In our library, we have an extensive card catalogue and index to our medieval and early modern archive, and most of our modern one.

You can also see detailed indexes for the three main Abbey medieval cartularies (Westminster Domesday, Liber Niger and St Martin Le Grand) and separate indexes for the seal collection and lease books.

We’re currently in the process of transferring this enormous archive catalogue onto a database, and it will eventually be available online.

There’s a separate card index for the library's contents, and we are also gradually entering these into the database. But in the meantime, you can use this index in the library.

The biggest challenge we face is maintaining such a large physical collection of material within a historic building – believe it or not, there’s just not enough space for it all.
