Above: Drawing by Amanda Hill, formerly of the Archives Hub, and now relocated to Canada. Submitted by Amanda: "This elephant is a small part of the Archives Hub’s own history. It was drawn on 19 January 2004, during a meeting to discuss the replacement of Irwell, the server upon which the service ran until 6 December of that year. I’m afraid I found those meetings rather dull…."
This October the Archives Hub is taking part in The Big Draw. We want you to make drawings inspired by archives – or by elephants! – scan them or photograph them, and then email the digital versions to us. We’ll give an Archives Hub notepad and propelling pencil to everyone who sends us a drawing, and the first name out of the pith helmet will receive some paper made from elephant pooh! If you send us your postal address, we won’t use it for anything else.
