Online archive

The ISRC Archive is the first online archive in Scotland and the UK to preserve historical documentation relating to one of Scotland’s largest immigrant communities over the last 130 years.

The Archive is the ISRC’s driving initiative. It comprises material from the 1880s, the period of the first Italian mass migration to Scotland, to the present. Its creation involves cataloguing, digitisation and archiving of documents for the most part not previously identified, including letters, photographs, films and other personal ephemera.

Archive Curator: Dr Carlo Pirozzi
