The Archives Department will host a workshop tomorrow, Friday, February 1, to celebrate Barbados’ successful completion of the digitization of the Barbados Mercury and Bridgetown Gazette newspaper from 1783 to 1838.

The Department received grant funding from the British Library, under the Endangered Archives Programme, for this project.  

Chief Archivist, Ingrid Thompson, reported that she was very happy about this latest development, as it would prove to be invaluable for persons doing research.
