Learning about Archive Services

Today we were visited by our third and final Information Management & Preservation class. For the past few weeks Archive Services has opened up its searchroom and hosted the future information professionals, acting as an example of how an archive service runs. The class was taken by Claire Daniel, who talked the students through our collections and the types of records that we hold.

Claire also covered the types of readers that normally visit us and what types of enquiries we receive. She also spoke about the history and future of the service within the University. And of course, no visit to Archive Services would be complete without having some of our ship plans on display. We laid out a few plans of one of our most popular ships, the Lusitania.
