The archive of the International Public Relations Association (IPRA) was acquired by Bournemouth University in early 2011. It contains papers, newsletters, books and photographs from 1953 to the early 2000s. Preliminary cataloguing of the archive has been undertaken by Prof Tom Watson of the Faculty of Media & Communication. The catalogue was updated in May 2015.

Summaries have been made of the Executive Minutes and Agendas, Conferences and Meetings correspondence, and Congresses correspondence. Also other elements of the archive are listed. The summary of the archive is available in a PDF file on this site.
