Cathy Flint, Archivist, Information Services, spoke about the processes involved in using archives generally, the difference between archives and libraries and the different types of archives available at the NTAS by providing a range of examples which proved to be of great interest to the participants as most of them had not used archives before. Cathy also discussed the NT History Grants Collaboration between the NTAS and the NT Writers Centre program which is administered by the NTAS. The purpose of this program is to encourage the work of researchers who are recording and/or writing about Northern Territory history. The level of interest in this one-day workshop was such that it will be held again in late March this year, and the NTAS will once again participate. Another successful collaboration between the NTAS and the NT Writers Centre was the Indigenous anthology Under the Mango Tree. For details please see Records Territory, No 23, February 2001.
