Series description

Series title: Information Department: Information/Library Unit Files, 1966-1991
Reference: ACGB/68
Extent: 158 items

Context

Information was initially the responsibility of the Research and Information Unit, which was established in 1973 as part of the Regional Department. In 1976 the Regional Department was disbanded, but the Research and Information Unit remained and was later absorbed within the Personnel and Administration Department.

In 1985 the Research and Information Unit was re-organised with a new Head of Information Services being responsible for four sections including Information/Library. In 1986 this unit became part of the new Marketing and Resources Department within the new Services Division.

Scope and content

This series consists mainly of information files and administration files. It includes the papers of Gillian Dare and Rod Fisher.

The items in this series are arranged chronologically.
