Kent History Centre Archives User Group

Interesting information from Celia Heritage for those in Kent or with Kent connections.

The next user group meeting is 12 o'clock on 15 October 2014 in the Library Meeting Room at Kent History and Library  Centre, Maidstone.The last meeting, scheduled for July, was inexplicably cancelled by KHLC and so this will be our first meeting since the end of April. Convincing management at the centre to make changes has, in many cases, proved hard work while even if they do agree these changes often take a long time to be put into effect due to local logistics. However, we are making progress, notably the return of the  displaced paper catalogues and indexes that were so useful at at CKS, has finally gone ahead.  At the next meeting we will be concentrating on discussing IT issues such as  the inflexibility and incompleteness of the online catalogue and the lack of visibility given to the archives on KCC’s website. The meetings usually last about 1.5 hours.  Please do come along and have your say. All welcome.
