New archive catalogue launched

Published: 11 October 2021

The Archives and Special Collections are delighted to announce the launch of our new integrated Archive Catalogue. We have worked with the Metadatis, the team that created Epexio, to deliver an archival discovery platform that brings together for the first time all catalogue descriptions of the archive collections into one online system.

The new Epexio Archive Catalogue marks a significant change as it draws together and replaces the existing databases, including those for the Wellington Papers, Mountbatten Papers and Palmerston Papers. The integrated system includes catalogue descriptions of all collections and enables keyword searches across the whole of the hierarchy of the collection, allowing you to delve deep into the fine detail of the rich and varied archival holdings.

Here is a link to the catalogue:  

Here is a link to our YouTube tutorial videos on how to use the catalogue:

To coincide with the launch of the Archive Catalogue we will be promoting the system on twitter:
