Laura Ibbett

Archives Collections Assistant

Part time (50%)

Laura first became interested in polar science and exploration after a short contract cataloguing Geologists papers at the British Antarctic Survey. The project introduced her to the archive profession and she went on to spend the next 10 years working for Cambridgeshire County Councils busy archive service.
