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.
Accessions to repositories 2012 has now ended. We had a 96% return rate and responses from 322 archive services.
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 can now be viewed at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/accessions/ .
