'The Library was established by the will of Dr Daniel Williams, the leading London nonconformist minister of his day, who died in January 1716. He left instructions for his trustees to house his collection as a public library and to make it available to nonconformist ministers, tutors and students in the City of London ... The Friends of Dr Williams’s Library was established in November 1946 ... Their stated intention was to "develop and make more widely known the very considerable research facilities of the Library". To that end, the Friends instituted a series of Annual Lectures to promote interest in, and support for, the Library’s collections.'

The Friends of Dundee City Archives is an organisation, established in 1989 to support the work of the archivists in Dundee. An important aim of the group is to raise public awareness of the work of the Archivist's office and of the importance of preserving documents which may be of value to historians in future years. Money raised from members subscriptions and other activities has helped to purchase important historical papers that would otherwise have been lost to the City and so has contributed to the preservation of Dundee's documentary heritage. The Friends arrange activities throughout the year, most notably a long running series of monthly lunchtime talks on topics of local historical interest.'
