Shipbuilding Records in Scotland: Using Archives
When & Where
Jennifer Lightbody, The Glasgow School of Art Archives and Collections
As a former design engineer in the shipbuilding industry, it was inevitable that Jennifer Lightbody’s move into the archives sector would involve shipbuilding records. This talk will cover her MSc cataloguing placement at National Records of Scotland, considering shipbuilding photograph albums from the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders collection, how they are used by researchers and how they are described in the catalogue.
It will also cover her wider dissertation research on how shipbuilding records are used in archives across the country, and how her range of experiences and immersion in archives has led her to her current role.
