Immediate source of acquisition


Paper and analogue records were arranged by the archivist in August 2022. A second accrual of born-digital records were arranged by the archivist in February 2023. Due to the time lapse between these two accruals, paper and analogue files were arranged first in the file list in chronological order according to earliest date. Following this, born-digital files were also arranged chronologically by the archivist.
