International Archives Day

Thursday 7 June

Balliol Archives & Manuscripts will be celebrating International Archives Day (9 June) by participating in #archday12 on Twitter, organised by @AskArchivists. The day itself is a Saturday, so like many archivists around the world Anna Sander will be taking questions and posting content (on Twitter and Archives & Manuscripts blog, links below) on Friday 8 and Monday 11 June.

Of course, you don’t have to wait for an occasion like this to make an enquiry to Balliol’s archivist, but the event is an opportunity to ask lots of archivists questions about their work, their collections and research using all kinds of original source material, from medieval manuscripts to early modern maps to photographs and film. Come and join in!

If you are not on Twitter, you can also ask questions for this event via the Facebook page or by email.
