This article looks into information resources regarding the histories of the miners' trade unions. The papers are dominated by the work which Robin Page Arnot undertook in writing the official history of the miners' trade unions in Great Britain. Amongst the earliest trade union records collected by Arnot is a volume of printed annual reports of the Amalgamated Association of Miners of West Bromwich. A similar depth of coverage is provided by Arnot's papers relating to the establishment of the Marx Memorial Library and his role in developing the institution as a center for Marxist education.
