Other methods of publicity are emerging, I have recently been interviewed for the University’s alumni magazine, which I am told has a global readership. This will certainly raise the profile of our intent and work so far, however I much happier out of the spotlight, wrapped in the anonymity of a blog or buried in books and papers. But as the parable goes, no one lights a lamp and hides it.
And then there was the shock realisation that I am going to have to stand in front of library colleagues and explain to them what’s been going on in the Archive for the last year or so. I can only hope that some of my own interest and enthusiasm comes through in my rambling presentation.
