This Wednesday staff attended an event that gave them the opportunity to tell colleagues about their own collections and the diverse uses to which they were put.

Apart from making our own contribution on the Art & Design Archives and the projects we've been involved in, we also had a chance to learn more about - among others - the rare books in the Library Treasures Collection, Louise Chapman's historic collection of eighteenth and nineteenth-century textiles,  and the Birmingham Music Archive founded by Jezz Collins from the School of Media.
