LHSA would like to wish everyone all the best for a happy 2011!
The LHSA team are back at work and planning for a busy and exciting year:
Laura, assistant archivist, is already dealing with some new accessions to the Archive. Alison, assistant archivist is continuing to catalogue our HIV/AIDS related collections. Stephen, archive assistant, is cataloguing photographs and writing a 'Spotlight On...' for our website. Ruth, paper conservator is planning for LHSA's involvement in the 'Unsung Heroes' project (see blogpost 3rd December 2010). Rosie, assistant archivist, is preparing a funding bid to the Wellcome Trust Resources for Research in Medical History scheme.
We will keep you posted on our progress throughout the year via this blog!
