Nicky Hilton – University Archives

Hi I’m Nicky and I work at the University Archives. Although not strictly a library trainee, there is a fair amount of cross-over in the two roles so I get to sneak on to some of the training sessions! I graduated in 2008 from the University of Manchester and before accepting this post I had a variety of jobs in teaching, retail and banking. I’ve volunteered in a number of archives over the last year but this is my first full time position in archiving.

My daily role varies. I answer email, letter and phone enquiries from professional researchers and members of the public, manage material from the archives that is taken to Duke Humfrey’s Library for readers to consult, as well as sorting new acquisitions and cataloguing.

In the future I plan to complete my postgraduate qualification in archives and records management and hopefully work in a museum/art gallery archive.
