Christmas has come early at Brighton College Archives, with 'phase one' of our re-fit nearly complete.

Last week, vinyl flooring was laid and rolling-racking installed at the archive. All material has also been re-packaged, and is ready to settle into it's new home. A wonderful end to 2015!

With improved shelving, comes improved access - and this will be the focus of 'phase two'. Over the next six months, a separate storage space will be transformed into a Reading Room, enabling researchers to view original material via appointment. 

Watch this space for updates...
