AIM25 for research and learning in London

AIM25 is a major project to provide electronic access to collection level descriptions of the archives of over one hundred higher education institutions, learned societies, cultural organisations and livery companies within the greater London area.

According to an announcement here the project is nearing completion, near its tenth
anniversary, and has been substantially upgraded.

Improvements include a doubling of the number of descriptions, new partners including the London Metropolitan Archives and Wiener Library and cross-searching with books held by the M25 Libraries Consortium. Date searching has been introduced, and the website refreshed with a clearer design.
