Hello all. I just wanted to welcome our new crop of library trainees based here in London (which has continued to grow, including now this year trainees from the Bank of England). I'm Mike from the Institute of Historical Research (you'll see me a few times throughout the year, but I'll mainly be an annoying email presence sending you Doodle Poll invites to various visits throughout the year!) Anyways I hope you'll all find this blog useful and maybe even entertaining in parts and feel free to make it your own for the coming year as previous trainees have done. N.B. One thing you'll also find useful is the list of coming visits which will begin to be updated soon, so eyes peeled.

See you soon.
