Start of the AIDS cataloguing project

Material from the AIDS collections

Chris Olver, the new Cataloguing Archivist started work today. He will be working on a project to catalogue, preserve and increase the accessibility to the School's AIDS archive collections. This project is funded by the Wellcome Trust's Research Resources in Medical History in a joint application between the Library & Archives Service and Virginia Berridge, Professor of History. There are six collections which will be catalogued, two of these originate from Professor Berridge, these are her papers for the study of the social impact of HIV/AIDS and the AIDS Social History Programme. Other collections include the papers of Professor Peter Piot and Professor Kaye Wellings, Project SIGMA and material from the Centre for Sexual and Reproductive Health.
