Language of Materials



The contents of this section were radically reorganised to bring record series together in Oct. 2001, hence the apparent illogicality of the numbering system. EDUC 19/15-18, 30, 91, 110, 114, 133-5: numbers not used following reclassification.


EDUC 19/110 were destroyed as duplicates in Oct. 2001. EDUC 19/6A-18 were destroyed as duplicates in April 2006 and numbers up to 14 reassigned.
