I recently started working on the Medical Officer of Health digitisation project.

The MOH reports in our collection are shelved in different sequences: Main, London and Provincial. However, all three sequences contain reports for London areas. Main and Provincial sequences are bound by geographical area and generally they're in a good condition but the London sequence reports are bound by year and tend to be in a poorer state due to their heavy use. There are about 80 bound volumes in the London sequence and they are all being disbound. Eventually we will be able to house all of the London reports together by geographical area.

Whilst I am going through the reports, I have been finding some very interesting snippets. I will include some as I continue to blog so look out for them!
