Every year The National Archives invites collecting archive repositories in the UK to send us a comprehensive list of accessions they have taken in during the previous 12 months. This information is published on The National Archives' website and provides us with a vital knowledge base. This allows us to monitor the transfer of public records and manorial documents.
The deadline for returns for Accessions to repositories 2012 has now ended. We have had responses from 266 archive services. Click on the image, right, to see the percentage of returns received for each region.
Some highlights from Accessions 2012 include the transfer of the entire Oxfam archive to the Bodleian Library. In the past year the London School of Economics has collected some interesting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) specific material including the records of a support group 'Consultation for Gay Clergy' and Exeter University now holds the personal papers of the author Daphne Du Maurier. More information about these collections can be found on the National Register of Archives.
Data collected during Accessions to repositories 2012 is now being edited and topic specific digests will be available online in the summer.
