Oxfam archive catalogues arrive online

The first three catalogues resulting from the cataloguing of the Oxfam archive at the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, are now available online. 850 boxes of archive material and almost 500 posters are now open to researchers, much of the material relating to Oxfam’s development and humanitarian work in Africa. The catalogues cover the records of Oxfam’s programme policy and management, the records of its campaigning work and the records of its external and internal communications. See http://blogs.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/savingoxfordmedicine/ for further information and links to the catalogues.

The Oxfam archive, spanning seventy years, is being catalogued in a four and a half year project supported by the Wellcome Trust. The project has been divided into three 18 month phases with a tranche of catalogued material made available to researchers at the end of each phase. See http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/bodley/finding-resources/special/projects/saving-oxford-medicine/cataloguing-the-oxfam-archive for further information on the project.
