TNA Catalogue Week

Quite a few years ago I was fortunate to be in Kew and attended most of The National Archives Catalogue Day presentations.

This year Catalogue Day has become Catalogue Week with 17 recorded presentations and blog posts to mark the 21st year.

There’s a summary of what’s on each day here. 

Thursday’s program looks to be of particular interest;

“First and Second World Wars. Laura Robson-Mainwaring discusses cataloguing First World War medical diaries, while Michael McGrady looks at the challenges presented by abbreviations and identification in cataloguing Second World War diaries. James Cronan continues the Second World War theme focusing on civilian honours, and our final blog release for the day highlights the case of Leonard Orpin, a British civilian interned during war time.”

It appears TNA is posting day-by-day links at
