Change to Opening Hours

A practical post for a Monday morning!

We have had a change of staffing in Special Collections which has meant an adjustment to our opening hours.

During December 2017 we are open on Mondays by appointment only, and open Tuesday to Friday from 9 to 5 as normal.

From January 2018 we will be open on Mondays from 9 till 2, and Tuesdays to Fridays from 9 to 5 as normal. If you absolutely must get in to see us on a Monday at 3.30, please contact us in advance to discuss options.



About Katharine Short

When I was 13 every careers questionnaire I did at school suggested I become an archivist. In rebellion I studied History of Art at Cambridge and the Courtauld Institute before giving in to the inevitable and undertaking a qualification in Archives Administration at Aberystwyth University. I worked at King’s College London Archives and the London Metropolitan Archives before becoming the Archivist here at DMU in January 2013. My role is hugely varied: answering enquiries and assisting researchers, sorting, cataloguing, cleaning and packaging archival material, managing our environmentally controlled storage areas, giving seminars, talks and tours, researching aspects of University history, liaising with potential donors and advocating for the importance of archives within the organisation. I am one of those incredibly fortunate people who can say ‘I love my job’ and really mean it.
