Welcome

IET Archives blogs

These blogs have been created by the IET Archives as a means to communicate upcoming items of interest. We welcome comments and hope you find the posts helpful and also enjoy learning about our rich and varied collections.

In addition to cataloguing our collections and making those descriptions available in our online catalogue, the Archives team make the material accessible via different avenues.

One of these outputs is the IET Archives blog.

Our blog highlights collections that we have used when answering enquiries, assisted researchers, or accessed when working on projects. We also use our blog to highlight new accessions to the Archives. We try to include a different angle on the material so that it is not just a formal description of the material but rather a story where the collections are an integral part.

We aim to write a new blog once a fortnight and hope to include guest bloggers and interviews with researchers in the future.

We also have a second blog site covering our World War I material. Here you can find obituaries of our members plus articles relating to the war from within our collections.

Please see the IET Archives World War I blog for more information.
