Next week we will be following the success of our Exploring the Wellington Archive afternoon with a free open afternoon enabling visitors to discover some of our lesser known delights.
From 1530-1700 on Wednesday 18 November 2015, visitors will have the opportunity to view manuscript and printed material focusing on the theme of the natural world and to meet the curators. On display will be an array of material from across the collections, including on agriculture, botany, meteorology, environmental management and entomology.
The visit to Special Collections will be followed by a short presentation on the Historic River Data and Freshwaters Archive titled Looking Back for the Future of the Worlds Rivers: “The use of historic data for predicting the future of river quality and ecology” by Terry Langford, Visiting Professor, Centre for Environmental Sciences.
