A short time ago in a strongroom not so far away...
The City Archives blog has returned to its Store Tours series, as survey and organisation work continues in preparation for the move...
Store Tours: Episode III - The Balcony
After taking a moment out of our Store Tours schedule to show you the City Archives' Reading Room we're getting back down to business with a circuit round the balcony area. Situated on floor three of the City Central Library & Archives building - just next to the aforementioned Reading Room and only a couple of doors away from the Store E strongroom - the balcony houses our local studies and pottery libraries as well as part of our local maps collection. As we filmed this vlog we were actually in the midst of some survey and organisation work, so you might spot the odd temporary label or even an empty shelf or two in the video, but it's all part and parcel (pun intended!) of our prep work for the move.
