As Archivist Joanne Rothwell of Waterford County Archives explains: "The raison d'etre of a local authority archive is to make its collections available to as wide a public as possible. We are here to facilitate not just academic researchers but also family historians, locals who want to know more about their area, householders who want to uncover the history and status of their homes... any sort of researcher. We don't just focus on one or two narrow groups."
