The Political Parties and Parliamentary Archives Group, UK (PPPAG UK) was established in January 1997 to bring together the archivists and librarians in charge of administering Party political archives and the private papers of politicians. It was originally called the Political Parties Archive Network, United Kingdom (PPAN UK), but changed its name to PPPAG UK in September 2001, with an aim to broaden membership and experience.
The group meets twice a year. Its main objective is to promote professional cooperation and communication between the archivists and archives holding papers of political parties and of parliaments.
The group has representatives in the following groups:
- Society of Archivists' Specialist Repositories Group
- International Council of Archives, Section of Archives and Archivists of Parliaments and Political Parties (ICA-SPP)
