Leading England's archive sector - one year on

The National Archives at Kew has released a report entitled A Year in Archives, detailing its progress over the first year for which its has adopted a leadership role for the English archive sector. Not only does it summarise its achievements, it also provides "a showcase for the innovative work taking place in the archives sector, and the creative partnerships archives are building with other organisations".

The report includes information on Manchester Central Library's restoration, Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service's move to The Hive,Staffordshire Record Office's Landed Estates Collaborative Doctoral Award, The new East London Mosque Archives catalogu
