There are aliens and strange structures just metres from my desk. But don’t be alarmed. I haven’t been beamed from Starship Enterprise to a parallel universe! The strangers are just asbestos removal experts – back for a second visit. This time they’re making the under-floor spaces for the new Heritage Hub safe, ready for remodelling work. And it’s all happening behind closed doors – so there’s no danger.
Meanwhile, Archives staff have been celebrating some good news. The Local Government Association has awarded us £15,000 to develop online customer registration arrangements and streamline our online document ordering system. These improvements should make it quicker and easier for everyone to access original documents and minimise any queuing times at the new Heritage Hub reception. Well done to our Digital Preservation & Access Officer, Claire Collins for leading the way on the successful bid!
