Covid-19 Update

Max are pleased to confirm that our teams are still fully operational in line with the latest government guidelines. This includes our off-site team at ONS. We do understand, however, that for many businesses and institutions this is unfortunately still not the case. We continue to wish you well during this difficult period and look forward to somewhat easier times, hopefully by Spring 2021.

If you would like to schedule a call for a future date, please complete our contact form indicating a preferred day. We have decided to freeze our prices until May 1st 2021 to ensure that our customers are not penalised by the ongoing restrictions. We may decide to extend this date further still.

In the meantime, please do take a look at our podcasts page . The passion, enthusiasm and insight from our guest speakers has been inspirational, especially given the circumstances.

Anne Locker – The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)

To be notified as new recordings are released, please subscribe using the button below.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is a multidisciplinary professional engineering institution and has been in existence since 2006 when The Institution of Electrical Engineers (founded 1871) and The Institution of Incorporated Engineers (founded 1884) amalgamated to form the current body. It has a global membership which exceeds 168,000.

Anne Locker covers a wide range of subjects including the challenges faced in globalising an unusually varied archive. She describes the role the archive has played in the push for diversity and in highlighting the work of female engineers down the years. Anne explores some of the highlights from the collection, including Chaucer’s little-known ‘Treatise on the Astrolabe’ and his desire to make engineering texts available in English as opposed to Latin.
