Summer solstice stock check

This week the Centre for Research Collections has been closed for its annual stock check. We’ve taken the opportunity to review the locations of our key items and our accessions of the last few years, as well as carry out some essential housekeeping work to make sure our stores are clean and the contents accessible.

We’ve also worked together to re-house architectural plans, photographs and glass plate negatives, update information in collections databases, install and label new shelving, and transfer outsize items to locations where they can be more easily removed and replaced.

It’s been a productive week but there’s still lots to do in next year’s stock check!
