We have recently begun a project, enlisting the services of Codex Conservation, to repair fragile volumes which were in too poor a condition to safely provide access to our users. We have just received back the two hefty volumes from the first batch – completely transformed from their previous sorry condition!
The personal papers of Ian Hinchliffe (1942-2010), performance artist, have now been catalogued, and are searchable via our online catalogue.
To celebrate the accessibility of this fantastic resource, we have been given, as a guest contribution, a version of a talk delivered by Dr Dominic Johnson at the public research event ‘Hinchliffe’s Afterlives’ in November 2017, organised in collaboration with Dave Stephens and the Live Art Development Agency.
Records relating to the early work of Queen Mary’s Electrical Engineering and Aeronautical Engineering departments have recently been catalogued. The records form part of the papers of John Turner MacGregor-Morris. MacGregor-Morris (1872-1959) was Professor of Electrical Engineering at East London College, later Queen Mary College.
We are delighted to announce that the Archives service at Queen Mary University of London has been awarded Archives Accreditation by the UK Archive Service Accreditation Committee, representing the entire archive sector.
