Most of this particular update is outside our period, save for the
collections of the Society of Antiquaries, but I continue to pass
along A2A updates because of its overall importance for the kind of
research we are doing. Note that I've added the URL to the list of MS
repositories on our theatre (and theatre history) reseource page.

A2A Update, February 2004

The latest A2A update took place on Tuesday 24 February 2004.  The A2A
database at www.a2a.org.uk now contains more than 6.3 million catalogue
entries describing archives held in 345 record offices, libraries, museums
and other repositories throughout England.  Among the 1015 new catalogues
are finding aids describing the following archives:

* architectural archives held in North East England, including plans and
drawings, chiefly relating to churches and other buildings in County Durham
and South Shields, catalogued for A2A through the Ashington to Zanzibar
project;
* the personal papers of the archaeologist Sir John Evans (1823-1908) and
those of the philanthropist Elizabeth Jesser Reid (1789-1866), and two
collections of 19th-20th century photographs relating to the Royal Army
Ordnance Corps, the Royal Army Service Corps and the Royal Corps of
Transport  - held respectively at the Department of Antiquities of the
Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, at the archives of Royal Holloway University of
London, and at the Royal Logistics Corps Museum in Deepcut in Surrey, and
catalogued for A2A through the Private Faces in Public Places project in the
South East;
* the 20th-century archives of the Back Theatre Forum and of the Black
Theatre Co-operative - Nitro Theatre Company, ranging from administrative
files and scripts to publicity material, photographs, audiotapes and videos,
held by Future Histories' Black Performance and Carnival Archive and
catalogued for A2A through the Re-membering Black Performance project;
* 241 business archives of all kinds held at East Sussex Record Office and
London Metropolitan Archives, including the records of J Lyons and Company
Ltd, operators of Lyons Teashops, Corner Houses and Restaurants from 1894,
and those of Fullers and Askew, surveyors and architects of Lewes,
contributed by the London and South East project The Works;
* the manuscripts in the collection of the Society of Antiquaries of London,
dating from the 10th century onwards, including the Lindsey Psalter (the
most important illuminated manuscript in the collection, dating from before
1222 and originally the property of Robert Lindsey, abbot of Peterborough)
and the Winton Domesday (two surveys of Winchester made in circa 1110 and in
1148);
*and public records held locally, including railway-related archives held at
Derbyshire Record Office, and 1910 Inland Revenue valuation records held at
Nottinghamshire Archives and Wiltshire and Swindon Record Office.

Remember that A2A is now only available at the new url www.a2a.org.uk.  The
site at the old url at .pro.gov.uk is no longer being updated, so please
change your bookmarks/favourites to the new url, and amend any web links you
may have.

Finally, A2A usage since launch now stands at 3 million database searches,
with 6.3 million catalogue downloads as a result.

A2A is the English strand in the UK archives network: its database at
www.a2a.org.uk already contains the electronic equivalent of over 400,000
catalogue pages describing archives held across England in national, local
and specialist repositories and dating from the 700s to the present day.
The A2A programme will make a further 300,000 catalogue pages available on
the web by March 2004.
