TitleGeneral Publicity Records
Admin/Biog HistoryThe publicity activity of Paul Mellon Centre (and its predecessor the Foundation) has been minimal: due to the nature of the business, it has never particularly needed to attract an audience. At the time of cataloguing only a handful of general publicity leaflets were located. These would have been distributed to anyone with a general interest in the Foundation or Centre, but also - with particular regard to leaflets produced by the Foundation - to those intending to apply for funds.

By the mid 1980s, the Centre had begun to produce activity specific leaflets which focused on particular audiences (eg. potential Yale-in-London students; grants & fellowships applicants etc.) and there was less need to produce general publicity information. At the time of cataloguing, only one general leaflet dating from this time was identified.

In February 2001, the Centre launched its own website and from this date onwards, general publicity has been on-line. At the time of its launch, the site included basic pages about all the Centre's main activities, as well as a general introductory page; and contact information. It was significantly redeveloped in 2002 to include, in particular, on-line applications for grant and fellowship funding offered by the Centre. It was redeveloped again in 2008-2009 the aim being to produce a site that was more easily navigable and interactive.

The Centre's website was designed and developed internally by Amanda Robinson (Information Officer 1995-2002) and is now managed in-house on a day-to-day basis by Maisoon Rehani. It is hosted by the University of London Computer Centre.
DescriptionThe records in this series comprise primarily printed leaflets and flyers, but also print-outs from the Centre's website.
