CCCA has large holdings of personal papers i.e. where the creator is an individual or a family. These collections often contain correspondence, newscuttings, literary manuscripts, diaries, photographs, printed ephemera, and memorabilia. Personal papers may also contain material directly related to the various organisations, activities, or interests of the individual concerned, for example, cultural groups, political parties, clubs and societies, and businesses. Personal papers can also sometimes be found mixed in with other types of collection, for example business archives or solicitors and landed estate papers.
