The Multi Documentation and Research Centre (Doc Centre) houses the National Trust collection of books, documents, reports, manuscripts, newspaper, photographs, maps, videos, tapes and any information that contributes to the historical identity of St. Kitts.
The collection contributes to the National Trust’s custodial work of preserving and promoting our cultural and historic heritage (traditions, customs, music, visual and performing arts, our monuments, buildings and historic sites) and natural environment. The ‘Doc Centre’, unlike any library, has both published and unpublished material available for access to the general public and members of the SCNT. The material is often referred to as the “engine of the National Trust” as it drives almost every aspect of the National Trusts’ work.
These documents are available to members of the National Trust and others involves in research, school-based assignments, consultants working on private sector projects, general knowledge, etc.
We are located on the west ground section of the building and are open on Mondays-Fridays 9 a.m-5 p.m.
Donate or lend any old photographs, post cards, newspaper articles, books or any other documents or collections relating to St. Kitts.
As you travel outside of St. Kitts, actively search and collect materials about the island for addition to the Doc Centre holdings. Be sure to photocopy the cover of the item so that we can identify the source and the date etc.
