My splendid colleague Ruth Ellis has put together a storyline for the event. It includes things that happened in the run up and on the day.

The run up to the day started with our sister society in Australia and New Zealand posting some pictures of their members. Catchy tagline – Life is easier with an index.

Whitefox covered the event in their newsletter:
