Includes a description of the ‘Connected Catalogue’ project (which had no funding), via which volunteers worked within the archive to help catalogue, improve access to the collections and put on displays and exhibitions. Eighteen volunteers joined in the project, including some with mental health issues seeking employment and three of the university’s students."
