WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
- Archive collections acquisition and management
- Creating a reliable documentation trail
- Good handling and preservation skills
Knowing how best to acquire precious archive collections, document, preserve and make this unique material available can be a daunting task.
I provide a short course in Community Archive management that will enable your organisation to develop collections management and conservation skills that adhere to the relevant national standards and best practice guidelines. Download a sample course programme here: Community Archives programme
The course was originally commissioned by the Marches Network, supported by Arts Council England, and has been delivered to 16 services across the Midlands.
Overall an excellent introduction and really useful advice as to where to find more info as and when necessary
Provided the Big Picture on archive standards and issues and the thinking/decision making process of assessing accessions, conservation and production protocols.
