Items from the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering's Fleming Collection, part of the UCL Science Collections have recently formed part of a innovated exhibition staged at UCL. Disposal?, which closed last week, invited you to comment on the most challenging question faced by museums today: What should they collect and hold on to and what should they get rid of?

The exhibition featured just a few of the more that 3500 glass lecture slides that have been used at UCL by distinguished professors from Sir Ambrose Fleming to Harold Barlow.

Some of the slides were featured in an exhibition at UCL which received widespread press coverage including an article in the Guardian newspaper

In 2004, support by the then UCL Friends Programme, the whole collection was cataloged and images stored to aid public access. You can view further details on Fleming and access the collection online
