Welcome to our blog

Well, this is exciting. My first ever blog post, and the first post of the Information Directorate’s new blog. Probably the only time I’ll ever get a double first.

We’ve launched this blog to supplement our existing channels of information; in addition to our website, you can already find us on Twitter and Facebook:
We’d like to use the blog for less formal information to give you a more detailed glimpse at the work we do, and at the interests and preoccupations of our colleagues.

The Information Directorate comprises Library, IT and Archives - our starting point for this blog is with posts from the Library side, but we intend to post from an IT viewpoint too from the summer onwards. Our friends at the Borthwick Institute for Archives have cunningly already launched their own blog, well established at:

Our next post will be with you in just a day or two, offering a personal take on Germaine Greer’s appearance at the York Literature Festival. Subjects that we plan to cover over the coming months include some highlights of the collection recently gifted to us by the York Art Gallery, an insight into the book-binding exhibition currently on display in the Fairhurst building, World Book Night, and the centenary of the First World War.

We hope you’ll be back to join us again - in the meantime, please have a read through some of our favourite blogs, highlighted at the right of this page.
