I've been asked by the School of Textiles and Design to look at ways
that the textile archives can be used in post-graduate research, what
has been done with other similar collections in the past in other
institutions and the subjects covered. Our collections comprise of
business records from tweed mills, tartan, costume, embroidery, Paisley
shawls and print. This enquiry is not purely aimed University
collections, as many postgrad students will use collections in non HEI
If you could reply off list I can sumarise the responses.
