NAWCC Archival Collections -

Postby koimaster » October 30th 2016, 11:10am

Kate Van Riper, our NAWCC archivist, has notified us that the new archives finding aids are now live on the website! These are basic finding aids. As staff is able, they will expand the descriptions for the collections and these basic finding aids will be replaced by more descriptive ones. So it’s very much a work in progress. Why not check them out to get a feel for the range of materials we archive; everything from watch and clock company records to members' personal papers. You can find them under the Library and Research tab in the Research section or directly at: ... nding-aids

The Library's archives include records from watch and clock companies and the papers of prominent horologists. The archival collection is restricted, but may be accessed by approved researchers. Please see our archive rules for more information.

Finding aids and/or container lists are available for most collections and can be accessed below.


By Subject | By Call Number

Researchers interested in accessing the archives should take a look at the archive rules before coming to the library. Appointments for access should be made at least three days in advance. Research appointments are required for projects lasting for more than one day or requiring access to more than one collection, two boxes or five folders, but not required for small, short term projects. Letting the librarians know ahead of time what you will be interested in looking at will make things go more smoothly once you arrive. ... nding-aids

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
