MAJOR ACCESSIONS TO REPOSITORIES IN 1997 RELATING TO WELSH HISTORY THE Historical Manuscripts Commission collects information each year relating to manuscript accessions from over 250 repositories and record offices throughout the British Isles. This information is published on the internet via the Commission's web site ( and in a series of thematic digests which appear in a wide range of learned journals and news sheets. It is also added to the indexes to the National Register of Archives (NRA), which are available for public consultation in the Commission's search room at Quality House, Quality Court, Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1HP, or via the Com- mission's web site. The Commission will also answer limited and specific postal and e-mail enquiries. Readers should note that some deposits may not yet be fully listed and the appearance of a collection in this digest does not necessarily mean that it will be available for research. Further enquiries regarding access should be addressed to the staff of the relevant repository.
