This blog is where you can discover information, images and stories about our work collecting, preserving and making records accessible at Birmingham Archives & Heritage Service. You can read about our local studies and archival collections and new material we receive, as well as learn about cataloguing, public service, digitisation and outreach projects we are involved in. You’ll get a chance to find out what goes on behind the scenes and we’ll keep you up-to-date with events we are running, exhibitions we are involved in and our preparations for the move to the Library of Birmingham in 2013. We’ll provide you with tips for researching local and family history and how to make the most of using our collections.
You’ll be able to read more about all of these and plenty of other aspects of our work in future posts. We really encourage you to comment on our posts and on Facebook, to make suggestions and provide feedback. We look forward to hearing from you.
