The final blog post in our series documenting the first Underpinnings Museum Twitter conference shares the presentation by Georgina Orgill, entitled Archives: A Brief Introduction.

UAL Archives and Special Collections Centre is home to over 25 different collections and archives related to filmmaking, graphic design, sound arts, comic books and the history of printing. This presentation will delve into some of our collections to reveal some unexpected underwear trivia and examine the practical aspect of carrying out research in archives.

Georgina Orgill is Senior Archivist and Stanley Kubrick Archivist working in the Archives and Special Collections Centre at University of the Arts London (UAL).

We have been sharing each of the conference presentations via its own blog post – you can find the whole series here. If you’re on Twitter, you can join the discussion via the Underpinnings Museum’s account and the conference hashtag #UPMTC
