What is in the Catalogue
Information available on the on-line catalogue is updated on a regular basis. All collections held by the service have a general description including title, covering dates and brief description of contents. Some collections are listed down to individual item level, but if a collection is very new to the service it may take a short time to come through to the on-line catalogue so please check for updates, or contact us if you can not find what you are looking for If you have any comments about this site we would welcome your feedback: archives@wyjs.org.uk
