Archives held by University of Cambridge: new search facility

Published on 24/02/2021 

Important news for users across our libraries who wish to search for archives held in Cambridge.

The Archive Management System Project is close to completion, and library users can now use ArchiveSearch to access finding aids (and, where available, links to digital records) for the majority of archives associated with the University of Cambridge.

ArchiveSearch replaces Janus, which will be switched off at the end of February: a notice has been added to the Janus homepage warning external users that the site is no longer being actively maintained and will not be available after February this year.

To help users make the transition to using the new system, the AMS team have published a LibGuide explaining how to use ArchiveSearch as a discovery tool.
