Who Katharine Short (De Montfort University) and Natalie Hayton (De Montfort University)
What "Archival Classification". Why do archives use long alphanumeric such as 'CLC/B/207/ST08/01/001' for their collections? What can such a string mean and why it is the way we organize knowledge? This session will explore the theories and practice behind archival cataloguing and indexing in the digital age, enabling researchers to become adept at finding the materials they need. Equally, the same techniques can help researchers organize their own material.
