Research Resources

Our aim is to build a web-based repository of research resources, including our own publications, and to provide a gateway to external information sources which will be useful to researchers within the Group.

  • The Sussex Historian’s Handbook, compiled by John Farrant, et al., 2000: a wide-ranging bibliography covering the history of Sussex, and advice on how to conduct historical research. This is mostly collated from resource listings first published in the early 1980s.
  • Library and Archive Resources: Local and national library and archival holdings and resources, including those for researching local and family history.
  • Lewes Directory holdings: Chronological list of historical Lewes directories of people and businesses held at local libraries and archives.
  • Historical Newspapers: Print holdings and online access to local and national newspapers, eg. British Newspaper Archive, Times Digital Archive, via Lewes Library.
