IGA PHYSICAL ARCHIVE
The IGA archive was organised voluntarily by a group of IGA members in 2016. This was largely made possible thanks to Nigel Monaghan and Matthew Parkes (RIP) from the National Museum of Ireland. A record is kept of all the documents present in the archive. These documents are available for consultation by appointment (GDPR rules apply). Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
The archive was classified in 11 sections:
- Newsletters and circulars
- Minutes and meetings
- Accounts and membership lists
- Posters and advertisements
- Constitution and Health & Safety
- Grants and Young Scientist
- Rock sets
- Field guides
