Archive Awareness Campaign was originally designed to be a celebration of the rich archive collections held within the UK. For the past seven years the British Geological Survey has hosted an annual event to demonstrate the variety of its archive holdings and their value to science.
Due to major site restructuring at BGS Keyworth we were unable to hold the event between 2010-2011 so we produced this online display to showcase some of our unique and valuable collections. In 2012 the event is going ahead as usual in the refurbished premises. If you are interested in attending this year's event, further information and booking details are available here
