“The magazine is asking readers and members of the public to nominate their Archive of the Year. If you feel that your local archive or study centre excels in the service it provides, let them know!
“The judging panel would like to hear about the service provided by the staff; the facilities in the search rooms; the accessibility and quality of the catalogue and finding aids; the range of services provided online, including access to digitised records; the range of documents available for consultation; connections with the local community; and facilities for disabled people.
“Nominations are restricted to UK county or municipal record offices; local study centres; specialist and regional archives; and university or library manuscript collections.
“The winner will be presented with the award at the Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE show in London next year.
