A COLLECTION of nuclear journals from the library at North Highland College UHI has been transferred to the new archive centre in Wick.

Nucleus: The Nuclear and Caithness Archives holds the historical records of Caithness and is the beginning of the process to access records from nuclear sites across the country.

The nuclear journals were originally housed in the library at Dounreay.

A team of archive operatives from Nucleus were at the college’s Thurso campus where they loaded the collection on to trucks to be transported to Wick.

The journals date back to the 1950s and cover a vast area of academic research. At the college, the collection was utilised by the development education research centre, part of the Environmental Research Centre.

Nucleus deputy general manager David Lee said: “We are proud to give this important collection a new home at Nucleus. Our aim is to preserve knowledge about the nuclear industry for future generations, and these journals provide an invaluable wealth of information.”
