ALISS Visit to the Salvation Army International Heritage Centre

I've had this draft sitting in Blogger for ages. Oops. Anyway, here is a quick note of my visit to the Salvation Army International Heritage Centre, located in Denmark Hill, south London.

Organised by ALISS, the visit involved a tour of the reference library and archives as well as a look around the museum. It began with a talk about the history of the library and archive, which contains material from the history of the Salvation Army as well as the foundation of William Booth College, also on site, where members are trained. Later we visited the library of the College, an open, airy, modern space designed to assist students. The visit was very interesting.
