What's new at Edinburgh City Archives
The latest news and events from the City Archives
ECA News update May 2013
- The City Archives took in a number of new accessions since February this year. Prime among them is a substantial deposit of records from the now defunct Lothian & Borders Fire Brigade based at Lauriston Place. Once these archives are fully sorted and catalogued they will make a wonderful addition to ECA's collections.
We also took in a number of records from Trinity Academy and David Kilpatrick's School comprising log books and debating society minutes. This adds to our ever growing collection of school records.
- A project, begun last year on our collections to undertake a preservation survey and draw up a programme of preservation work, is well under way. The survey was completed earlier this year, the results recorded and analysed and an ongoing plan of basic preservation work is progressing well under the experienced hand of our temporary member of staff, Jen Hogg.
