The British Records Association has recently partnered with Liverpool University Press in publishing English Archives: An Historical Survey by Richard Olney.

The event is open to all but attendees are asked to register on Eventbrite, using this link:


‘English Archives: An Historical Survey is the first book to treat the history of English records creation and record-keeping from the perspective of the archives themselves. Drawing on the author’s extensive knowledge and experience as both archivist and historian, it presents the subject in a very readable and lively way. The BRA’s collaboration with LUP has enabled an affordable paperback edition to be produced.

The book is now available from LUP and other booksellers: https://www.liverpooluniversitypress.co.uk/doi/book/10.3828/9781802078411

We look forward to seeing you on July 10th!
