#AskArchivists Day on Twitter

On Thursday 9 June 2011 we will spend the day answering your questions on Twitter.

The National Archives, alongside national and local archives from around the world, will be taking part in #AskArchivists Day. On this day, you can use your Twitter account to ask us any questions about our collection, online resources and how to research at The National Archives. We have many of our experts on hand, so ask us: how to start your research, about archival practice and advice, where to find a particular record, about conservation, digital preservation and web archiving.

In the afternoon, between 14:00 and 16:00, Oliver Morley, Chief Executive and Keeper, will also be available to answer any questions you may have for him, as part of our 'Meet the Keeper'.

To keep up to date with the plans for #AskArchivists follow us on Twitter @UkNatArchives.
