Welcome to the first blogpost of Advisors, Advocates & Activists: A Century and more of Social Work in Edinburgh. Work has now begun on cataloguing the collections of Edinburgh University’s Social Work Department and the papers of associated individuals, including former staff. This blog will keep you updated on the project’s progress and share some it’s highlights. Alongside posts from the project’s archivist and research assistant it is hoped to have contributions from other individuals who have an interest in the material.
In the meantime you can read more about the project in the About Us section and more about the history of social work education and practice at the university and beyond at www.socialwork.ed.ac.uk/centenary.
