The Hampshire Archives Trust are pleased to announce the launch of their new website which aims to improve communication with members, and further the Trust’s objectives. These objectives include facilitating the saving of historic material at risk, preserving and cataloguing of existing archives, and helping easier and wider access of archives to the general public.
Major developments for the site include the ability for members to join and manage their subscriptions, and for members to book events. The Introduction to Archives section includes a series of case studies from Hampshire featuring stories about archives. It is hoped that these case studies, several of which will feature cases of grants from HAT, has done stimulate more applications for grants.
Further content will be developed in conjunction with local record Offices, Winchester College, the National Motor Museum etc, who are already contributors to the Newsletters under the able editorship of volunteer David Rymill.
