This week is the culmination of the National Archives awareness campaign.
There are three archive displays in the Library, giving the history of the First Court area of College and the new Heong Gallery (main exhibition in the foyer), an overview of the archive collections (in the Octagon) and the influence of Downing architect William Wilkins’ Grand Tour on his designs for the College (in the rear lobby through the Octagon).
These displays will be replaced in 2017 so if you haven’t already seen them, please take a few minutes to ‘explore your archive’!
More information is available on the Downing College archive.
