The British Records Association is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring a new prize, in memory of archivist Janette Harley (1951-2015). Janette was devoted to the BRA, which was a significant help to her during her early career. She remained a member throughout her life. At her death her family fulfilled her wish to bequeath a substantial capital sum to the BRA. This new prize is intended to generate interest in archives, and raise awareness of research and achievements in the world of archives. For more details, please see here.
BRA are delighted to be participating in History Day on 31 October. This popular annual event held at Senate House, University of London is an open history fair where libraries, archives and other research organisations can engage with academics and students.
