Information Services team

The Information Services group consists of the Archives Service, the BAS Library, the Polar Data Centre (PDC) and the Web and Applications team. These teams are jointly responsible for the management of over 70 years worth of scientific and corporate data and information.

The overarching aim of the group is to make data and information available and accessible to anyone who wishes to reuse it.

The component teams all have their own specific remits and aims and they can be seen in the links in the sidebar.
