'The Backdoor Broadcasting Company’s Academic Service specializes in web-casting academic conferences, symposia, public lectures, workshops and seminars in order to further the dissemination of academic research ...
... To make this service as cheap and as efficient as possible, we broadcast audio (sound) only, and with limited interactivity. Primarily we broadcast a conference/event live, we record it and make it available for download. Every event will have its dedicated webpage with supporting information and text, as well as contacts and links to the contributors ... As a service provider, we are hired by the conference/event organisers and are free to the listener. After the live broadcast all contributions will be placed in our archive, which is accessible as a free internet resource. Our main aim is to assist with the dissemination of research.'
Useful and Interesting Links 'We have included here some suggestions of national organisations which are of interest to local historians and whose websites provide useful information. In the section labelled "Local Societies" we have provided just a small sample of the many local history societies which now have their own website. Groups and societies dealing with local history vary widely in what they call themselves and what they do, not all have the term 'local history' in their title. There is a long list to be found in The Family and Local History Handbook. New ones, and their websites, are often mentioned in Local History News. If your group is considering having its own website those listed here may provide some examples.'
'The British Association of Numismatic Societies is the national organisation which represents numismatic societies throughout the United Kingdom.

'Most of the activities beekeepers enjoy are run at local associations. These include; lectures, open-air summer apiary meetings, courses, parties, quizzes, auctions, etc. Members of these associations pay subscriptions which gives them a voice and a vote in their association affairs. From the subscription, a capitation fee is paid annually to the BBKA and those combined fees are the only reliable income received by the national body. The BBKA holds a comprehensive list of member associations detailed by UK County.'

GENEVA is 'an online calendar of GENealogical EVents and Activities. This calendar is being run jointly on behalf of GENUKI and the Federation of Family History Societies. Event organisers are encouraged to check this calendar when picking a date to avoid clashes with other events in the same area. They are also encouraged to submit an entry for this calendar as soon as a date has been booked so that other organisers know about it and can try to avoid it. Please note that this calendar depends on your Family History Society submitting its events as well as you reading it. If your society's events are not listed, please complain to them rather than to me. If the calendar does not link to any further details, please don't ask me for further information - because I don't have any ...'
