The Fawcett Library was originally established as the Library of the London Society for Women's Service, which was a non-militant organization led by Millicent Fawcett. In 1953 the society and its library were renamed after her. The Fawcett Library was run by the Fawcett Society until 1977, when it moved to its present location at London Guildhall University. The library is now run by seven paid staff members, mostly parttime working, and six volunteers. The collection of the library concerns all aspects of women in society, with both contemporary and historical coverage.

Feminist Archive North houses a collection of grassroots material from the British women's liberation movement. It was established to collect and preserve the herstory of women's organizing and activism. Although the focus of the collection is 1969-1979, there is an extensive collection of contemporary material from women's groups, conferences and events on a local, national and international scale. The material ranges from newsletters and conference papers to badges and posters, from a wide variety of women's organizations. An oral history project was initiated in 1994: by means of interviews, women's memories are recorded and thereby preserved.
