Subject: [heraldnegindex] Herald Archive Project - inventory
Further to my earlier emails, I have arranged to meet Hilary Roberts, our
technical adviser, at the Herald offices in West Street on Friday June 10th
at 11am to look at the bound Herald volumes and how we go about adding them
to the inventory which will guide the way forward for the project.
It would be good if one or two of you could join us (Karen has already
signed up!) as you will then be in a positions to advise others as the
inventory check proceeds. (On June 10th we will only look at the format of
the inventory - not carry out the "counting".)
I have attached Hilary's sample inventory form for your information but this
will undoubtedly be modified after this initial meeting and then what needs
to go in which column.
On the 10th there will be a chance to see the bound volumes stored in the
cellar and also those in a very interesting ancient warehouse in Harts Yard.
If you take on the challenge of work on the inventory you will get quite
familiar with those two locations though I suspect the work will be
completed within a couple of visits (access is being limited to one hour at
a time to ensure your health and safety - the cellar particularly is very
At a later date we will hold another investigating session with Hilary at
the Museum of Farnham and its off-site store to conduct similar assessment
of the negatives and microfilm. I will ask for volunteers for those once the
date is settled.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you are able to join us for a
couple of hours on June 10th.
