In honour of International Archives Day – Proof that cataloguing archives really works

Posted by wcmlibrary on June 8, 2012

Tomorrow (9 June) is International Archives Day and in honour of the day I thought I’d share an archives/cataloguing success story.

On Friday 1st June I uploaded details of the contents of our collection of scrapbooks in the Frow Archive to our online library catalogue and on Wednesday 6th June we received a request from a reader to view items from the scrapbooks.

Proof not only that we are not cataloguing in vain, but also that the material we hold here at the library is in demand.
