This Friday, 12 November, is Follow an Archive Day on Twitter, so we thought that this would be a good week to launch our archives Twitter account, @LSHTMarchives.
Follow an Archive Day is an international event, following on from similar successful events for libraries and museums earlier this year. The hope is that it will increase public awareness of the work that archives do, and increase the number of followers for individual archives. For more information about the day, see http://www.archivesnext.com/?p=1699
