Janus is a project funded by the University of Cambridge to improve access to the archival materials available in the city. Most of the participants are from the University and its constituent colleges, although Addenbrooke's hospital and the Cambridge University Local Examination Syndicate are also contributing records. Subjects covered include the papers of Sir Winston Churchill, scientists' papers held at Trinity College, and medical history at Addenbrooke's. All records are stored in Electronic Archival Description (EAD) format and are written to the General International Standard of Archival Description (ISAD(G)). It should be noted that some of the records are collection level descriptions only and the repository should be approached first to see if the material is available for consultation.
