This is the first UAL Institutional Archive update by the new Archivist in this post.
Since taking over this role last month, I have been busy getting to know the archive and promoting it to a wider audience. A great way to do this is to get the material out of the repository an onto a public platform. With this in mind, I have been working on the installation of a display which is currently in the Meeting Room display case at London College of Communications (LCC) in Elephant and Castle (room M404).
The aim of the Institutional Archive is to capture, preserve and make accessible the University’s institutional memory, which has long-term value to researchers. This archive promotes greater knowledge and understanding of the University’s past and present, and also acts as a resource to stimulate new educational and creative practice.
