Oxford-based international development charity Oxfam has announced it has donated the organization's archive, spanning the last seventy years, to the University of Oxford's Bodleian Libraries.

Now, with a substantial grant from the Wellcome Trust, a four-and-a-half-year project is underway at the Bodleian to catalogue Oxfam's extensive records and make them more accessible.
