To access the archives you have to register with one form of photographic ID along with something with your address such as a utility bill.

The records you are using are unique and irreplaceable, so please be very careful when handling them. Before your visit, make sure you read our Search Room Rules. You can find out what records are held at our Archive Centre by searching our online catalogue.


The Archive Centre was set up by Glenrothes Development Corporation in the early 1990s. Their records make up a large part of our main collection. In 1995 Fife Council inherited the building and the process of bringing together all of the Kingdom’s historical documents began. This facility is now run by Fife Cultural Trust to maintain and catalogue archives on behalf of Fife Council.
