...my true love sent to me…five archivists.This year has seen some re-structuring in the LHSA service and the appointment of the fifth archivist in LHSA’s (and its predecessor bodies’) history. Laura Gould became Archivist in May, after holding the post of Assistant Archivist since 2007. Ruth Honeybone, who had been acting Manager of LHSA since December 2009, assumed this post formally, and Stephen Willis continued to work as Archive Assistant.
2012 also saw a ‘Wellcome’ addition to our staff in the form of Louise Williams, a Project Archivist on a Wellcome Trust-funded 2-year project (but more from Louise in tomorrow’s blog!).
The LHSA team
The four of us are all qualified to postgraduate level: three specialising in archive, records and information management and an accredited paper conservator. Although we’re a small team, we’re well placed to deliver LHSA’s core services to our present day audience and care for the collection so that it is available for future generations.
