Catalogues a plenty at Heritage Quay!

There’s been a deluge of new catalogue descriptions added to the Heritage Quay catalogue this week! This is great news for researchers as it means you can get more detail on the content of some of our collections! Here’s what’s been added:

– RFL Tape Collection – Lots of detail on the tapes in the RFL collections, of games, instructional videos, and the history and execution of the game.
– Cricket Research Centre Collection – The centre collected lots of materials relating to the history of cricket as part of a funded project and exhibited these locally.
– Continuum Ensemble – The working papers of the Continuum Ensemble, a musical company dedicated to bringing neglected 20th century music to modern audiences.
– Wombwell and Oxford Authentics – Records of both the Oxford and Wombwell cricket clubs and the Oxford University Indian cricket tour of 1902.
– Open College Networks – Publications and papers relating to the beginning of the open college networks.
– Mikron Tapes – The addition of oral history, research interviews and audio cassettes to the Mikron collection.
– George Glew Archive – The research reports, lecture slides and papers of this food scientist, who completed research on refrigeration and worked at the Universities of Leeds and Huddersfield.

All of these are searchable at our online catalogue at http://www.heritagequay.org/archives

    Your list has Open College Network – singular. That should be Open College Networks – plural. I led the establishment of Manchester Open College Network – and went on – with Central Government funding – to establish Open Colleges throughtout England, Wales and Northern Ireland – the National Open College Network.

    I still have a sizeable personal archive of these developments – and I’m currently working on a publication which sets out in some detail the key role that OCNs provided in establishing what I call ‘Adult Education as Community Development’ – and that will include a biographical study of ‘Agnes Smith of Holmfirth’ – an early 20th Century weaver who went to Hillcroft College, Surbiton, and became a key correspondent with Virginia Woolf.

    I have an interested publisher – but given these local West Yorkshire connections – perhaps we could, later in 2019, perhaps, have a Launch in your Library together with this London-based publisher?

      Many thanks for the correction David, made to both the blog and the catalogue entry! We look forward to seeing you in the archive if you do need to refer to the material you already deposited here, otherwise do keep in touch on your progress with the publication as it moves forward. Best of luck with your research!
