  35. 35. The Radcliffe Camera Staff Blog Danielle Czerkaszyn, HFL Graduate Library Trainee
  36. 36. A blog is an abbreviated version of ‘weblog’ which is a term used to describe websites that maintain an ongoing chronicle of information.
  37. 37. What is the reason/ purpose for the blog? What standards and guidelines are in place for posting? Who gets to post? Should limits be set on the content of the blog? How to tackle issues of privacy and data protection? How to get staff input and make them feel included?
  38. 38. The motivation behind the staff blog is to improve communication within the Radcliffe Camera team. By implementing the blog: • Work practices and issues are documented, shared and easily referenced at a later date • Information is consolidated in one place thus avoiding duplication • Email inboxes are less crowded with routine emails • Evening/weekend staff are better informed about what goes on during the week • Everyone will feel part of a wider team
  39. 39. Special thanks to Rachel D’Arcy-Brown Craig Finlay Isabel Holowaty The Bodleian Libraries And my fellow Trainees for a great year!

  44. 44. 1837. July. 1. Florence. Contains a reference to Queen Victoria "her manner and deportment during the first ceremonies of the Reign." - Praise of William IV. Florence, 1st July 1837 Dear Sir Charles - I welcome you sincerely to Italy, and almost to Terra Firma, & I am delighted to find that you have not given up your visit to Florence. I have not received any letter for you whatever, & any that may come hereafter, I will keep until you arrive. You will have been already acquainted with the change that has taken place in England. Everything, up to my latest accounts from London, had passed off quietly, & the general opinion is highly favourable to our young Queen, as to her manner and deportment during the first ceremonies of her Reign. The memory of the late King will be long and justly so, remembered by all classes in England, as a Sovereign during whose Reign the greatest benefits have been conferred. Pray command me in any way, & believe me to be, Dear Sir Charles, Yours most faithfully, Ra. Abercrombie A.2/1
