The EMap Archive: London College of Fashion

Project Background

The EMap Archive is a collection of British trade journals and related ephemera dating from the late nineteenth century to the present which has been donated to the London College of Fashion. It represents a unique resource for study of the fashion industry from a cultural, economic and historical perspective and is used by fashion historians, designers, journalists and students. EMAP has a history as a key publisher of trade journals for the fashion industry. The collection extensively covers subjects such as retail display, the development of trade journalism and the history of modern footwear.

Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board* through a process of conservation the EMAP project will ensure the Archive's preservation for future users. Indexing will facilitate ease of access via the world wide web and interpretation by the wider academic community and general public. The collection is searchable through the University of the Art's Library Catalogue (see below).

*(The Arts and Humanities Research Board was renamed the Arts and Humanities Research Council on 1st April 2005.)
