We would like to advise SHA members and others that, following the passing of our Chairman and Head Librarian Madeline Cox, FRAS (pictured at rear, above), in January, the Council of the SHA has appointed an Acting Librarian, Stuart Williams, to manage the SHA’s Sir Robert Ball Library at the Birmingham and Midland Institute.
Stuart was the founding Secretary of the SHA and later its Research Librarian (amongst other things). He has almost thirty years experience working in a borough archives and local studies library.
His first task is to undertake a Review of the Library Service, during which the lending service will be suspended.
Accordingly, the Library page on the SHA’s website has been revised and updated, please see:
If you have any enquiries about the Sir Robert Ball Library, please contact Stuart Williams by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
