Scope and content
These papers originated from UEA Registry and from David Baker’s office (former Librarian). Deposited in the UEA Archives on 3/9/2001.

Contained in two parts.

Part 1: Concerns the building of a Norfolk Record Office and East Anglian Studies Centre. This building was to be connected to the UEA Library. The proposal, which was made in November 1996, was to include the East Anglian Film Archive (EAFA) and the University Archives at the new centre. A bid was made to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) but it failed as it was too large and the involvement of the University too great.

Contains correspondence; applications to the Heritage Lottery Fund; minutes of various steering and task groups; sketch proposals from the architects John Miller & Partners; a video presentation (11 min.); and projected revenue costs (in box 2). Also includes correspondence relating to the move of the Fisher Theatre collection within the Library.

Part 2: Concerns a new bid (re-submission) from the County Council to the HLF. This bid was successful.

Papers relating to the new proposals of re-housing EAFA with a new Record Office at County Hall are included, also substantial papers relating to EAFA, including correspondence, trust proposals, articles of association, a business plan for 2000-2005, and one set of photographs which have also been copied to slides.
