A2A Update, August/September 2004

A2A was last updated at the end of August. 173 catalogues were added to the
database - the English strand of the UK archives network at
http://www.a2a.org.uk - which now contains more than 7.05 million catalogue
entries, in 82,400 catalogue files, describing archives held in 357 record
offices, libraries and other repositories throughout England.

The new finding aids include the following:

* catalogues of the records of Cable and Wireless, including corporate
records, staff records, financial records, maritime engineering records,
press cuttings and releases, marketing and other literature, photographs,
film, video, and maps, held at the Cable and Wireless Archive at Porthcurno
in Cornwall;
* catalogues of locally-relevant archives held by museums in Hertfordshire,
including Ashwell Village Museum, Baldock Museum and Local History Society,
and First Garden City Heritage Museum (in Letchworth);
* catalogues of the 'main papers' of the House of Lords (records brought to
the attention of peers during their sittings in Parliament) from 1497 to the
eighteenth century, contributed by the House of Lords Record Office - the
Parliamentary Archives - through the self-funded Parliamentary Archives:
Main Papers project;
* catalogues of manuscripts held at Lambeth Palace Library, created by a
wide range of individuals and organisations within and outside the Church of
England, relating both to ecclesiastical history and to other subjects such
as architectural, colonial, political and social history, and dating from
the 9th century to the present day, contributed through the self-funded
Church, State and People project;
* catalogues of a variety of church and other archives held by the archives
services of Cheshire and Chester, Cumbria, Lancashire and Liverpool,
contributed by the North West regional project Mills, Mansions and Corner
Shops;
* and descriptions of records of individual insurance policies issued by the
Sun Fire Office, notably in the later 1820s, held at the Guildhall Library -
prepared for A2A by the user-led A Place in the Sun project.

Work is continuing on new A2A projects; staff are now in post and starting
work on new cataloguing projects including Musical Notes at the Royal
Academy of Music, Images of Suffolk at Suffolk Record Office, and Experience
the Home Front at the Second World War Experience Centre in Leeds; and on
retroconversion projects including Hidden Talent at Hertfordshire Record
Office and Sussex Parish Chest for the archives services of West and East
Sussex. Startup training for such new projects is being arranged by the A2A
Central Team, and several sessions have now been held.

Finally, A2A has now been searched 4.2 million times since launch, with 9.6
million catalogue downloads as a result.

A2A is the English strand of the UK archives network; its database at
http://www.a2a.org.uk already contains the electronic equivalent of over
700,000 catalogue pages describing archives held across England in national,
local and specialist repositories and dating from the 700s to the present
day. The A2A programme will make a further 150,000 catalogue pages
available on the web by July 2005.
