      Helpers - a new web resource for family and local historians

      Helpers, (http://www.helpers.shl.lon.ac.uk), a web interface designed to
      open up archival and manuscript collections in the University of London
      to family and local historians and other public library users, has just
      been launched, thanks to funding from the former Electronic Access to
      Resources in Libraries (EARL) Consortium and the Laser Foundation
      (http://www.bl.uk/about/cooperation/laser.html).
      Helpers contains descriptions of archival and manuscript collections
      held in Senate House Library, University of London (www.shl.lon.ac.uk)
      and other libraries in the University of London which are of particular
      interest to family and local historians. There are also:
      * special tutorials and introductions to higher education libraries and
      archives * details of access arrangements * digitised examples of the
      material described This growing new web interface will help family and
      local historians to make the most of archival and manuscript collections
      held in higher education libraries and to build up a rich and
      contextualised history of their ancestors and localities.
