A recent initiative by the University of Teesside and Teesside Archives, both located in Middlesbrough in the north east of England, has secured the future of an important and significant archive of national and international importance. The British Steel Collection was gifted to Teesside Archives almost twenty years ago by British Steel plc (now Corus) but lack of resources prevented making it available to the public. No catalogue existed and very little was known about the full size of the deposit, the complexity or the variety of its contents. Indeed, due to lack of space, most of the Collection remained in storage at Corus until the University and the Archives joined forces.
