A2A Update, September/October 2004

A2A (Access to Archives) - the English strand of the UK archives network at
http://www.a2a.org.uk - was last updated on Friday 1 October 2004.  1,049
catalogues were added to A2A.  The database now contains 7.1 million
catalogue entries, in over 83,000 catalogue files, describing archives held
in 357 record offices, libraries and other repositories all over England.

The new additions include the following:

* catalogues of Methodist, Catholic and other local church archives held at
Tyne and Wear Archives Service, contributed through the locally-funded North
East regional project Bell, Book and Candle;
* catalogues of business archives held at the Record Office for
Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland, contributed through the HLF-funded
Home and Abroad project in the East Midlands;
* catalogues of a variety of archives held at London Metropolitan Archives,
including those of the Board of Deputies of British Jews and other Jewish
organisations, contributed through the HLF-funded London regional project
Magpie's Nest;
* the catalogue of the archives of the predecessor bodies of the British
Association of Social Workers held at Warwick University's Modern Records
Centre, contributed through the self-funded project Social Workers in Focus;
* catalogues of various archives held at Sheffield Archives, including
personal papers, railway archives, church records and maps, contributed
through the self-funded project South Yorkshire County Records;
* catalogues of photographs held at English Heritage, notably the Taunt
collection relating to Oxfordshire and surrounding counties;
* catalogues of local government archives and public records held locally,
including: plans of local buildings submitted to Hastings Borough Council
for approval under building regulation bye-laws, held at East Sussex Record
Office; the archives of Keighley petty sessions division (magistrates
court), held at West Yorkshire Archive Service's Wakefield headquarters; and
the archives of York Health Services NHS Trust, held at the Borthwick
Institute for Historical Research;
* and a catalogue of the papers of the codebreaker and mathematician Alan
Turing held at King's College, Cambridge, with direct links to images of the
originals on the Turing Digital Archive website.

New A2A projects are continuing to start up, such as Yorkshire Made, which
will provide access to catalogues of Yorkshire archives of trade and
industry, and Re-membering Asian Performance, delivered by Future Histories
in London, which will provide access to access to new descriptions linked to
images of the archive of the South Asian/Caribbean theatre and carnival
company Moti Roti.  As October is Black History Month, you might like to
know that A2A already also includes catalogues of the archives of the Black
Theatre Forum and Nitro Theatre Company (fomerly the Black Theatre
Co-operative) contributed by Future Histories' previous project Re-membering
Black Performance, among other relevant finding aids.

Finally: as recently announced, A2A catalogues have now been downloaded 10
million times since launch in 2001.  4.4 million searches have been carried
out on the database.

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.
