AA Archive: Online Catalogue
The first year of the AA Archive’s cataloguing programme has now been completed and a full description of the AA’s core governance and administrative records are available via the Archives Hub Archives Hub – the JISC-funded gateway to archival description of UK Universities and Colleges.
Cataloguing phase two, consisting of the description of the Archive’s holdings of historic student portfolios, graphic materials, models, etc, is now underway and all completed descriptions will be posted on the Archives Hub.
As the Archives cataloguing project is still in its infancy it is advised that if material cannot be found on the catalogue, queries should be made to the Archivist: firstname.lastname@example.org
