This collection consists of records created by Women in Profile, such as newsletters, correspondence, reports and promotional material (1987-2007); records created by other local organizations that Women in Profile collected over the years, such as invitations and posters to local exhibitions and business cards of local artists (1987-1990); as well as photographs and slides (1987-1992). There is also a large series of the records of Castlemilk Womanhouse (1989-2015).
The collection contains records relating to Take Root, the self-build group which existed from 1993 to the early 2000s. It contains meeting, finance and administration papers, correspondence, construction plans, press cuttings, publications and photographic and audio-visual materials. Because Take Root worked with several other organisations in Glasgow and Scotland, the collection contains meeting papers of Molendinar Park Housing Association and press cuttings and publications of various self-build projects including the Walter Seagal Self-Build Trust, Community Self-Build Scotland, and Centre for Alternative Technology.
