A2A Update, April 2004

As Phase 3 gets under way, the A2A Central Team is very pleased to announce
that the Heritage Lottery Fund have now made grants to 12 new A2A (Access to
Archives) projects. These projects include the following:

- Robert Boyle for the 21st Century: delivered by Birkbeck, University of
London, this project will contribute to A2A an extended catalogue of the
papers of the great 17th-century scientist Robert Boyle, held at the Royal
Society, with links to digital images of key documents;
- South West Access All Areas: delivered by Cornwall Record Office for the
South West Region, this project will convert 43,000 existing catalogue pages
describing a huge variety of archives in the region, ranging from borough
and church archives to the archives of the Gloucestershire Pig and Potato
Production Club;
- Bradfer-Lawrence: a Rather Different Kind of Collection: delivered by the
Yorkshire Archaeological Society in Leeds, this project will catalogue the
family and estate archives collected by H L Bradfer-Lawrence - including the
pre-Reformation stock book of Fountains Abbey, which will also undergo
extensive conservation work - and provide an interpretative website about
the collection;
- Accessing the Ancaster Archive: delivered by the Grimsthorpe and Drummond
Castle Trust working with Lincolnshire Record Office, this project will
contribute an enhanced catalogue of the Ancaster family and estate archive
held at Grimsthorpe at Bourne in Lincolnshire;
- Religion and Rebellion: delivered by the History of Parliament Trust
working with the Bodleian Library, this project will contribute an enhanced
section (focussing on documents of the later Stuart period) of over 17,000
pages of the originally hand-written Edward Edwards Calendar describing the
Carte Manuscripts - a major collection of state papers and other documents
relating to England and Ireland - held at the Bodleian;
- Oyster Sources: delivered by Canterbury Cathedral Archives and Whitstable
Museum, this project will contribute new catalogues of the archives of
Whitstable District Council and the Wallace Harvey Collection - both
significant resources for the history of Whitstable, a Kent seaside town
with an oyster fishing heritage;
- Hall and Tavern: delivered by the Library and Museum of Freemasonry, this
project will provide new catalogues of, and carry out conservation work on,
archives relating to the construction of the first Freemasons' Hall and the
Freemasons' Tavern and the societies and musical figures who met and
performed there in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

A2A projects with other sources of funding are also starting. These
include:
- Bell, Book and Candle: delivered by the North East Region, this project
will convert catalogues describing school and church archives in the region;
- Church, State and People: delivered by Lambeth Palace Library, this
project will convert part of the Library's unpublished manuscripts
catalogue, describing personal papers and the archives of church
organisations, ranging from mediaeval manuscripts to photographs.

There is no A2A database update this month. The next database update will
take place at the beginning of June.

A2A is the English strand of the UK archives network; its database at
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.
