Event description

Description

After the success of our workshop earlier this year in Edinburgh, Scottish Council on Archives and National Records of Scotland are collaborating with archive services across the country, to bring the First Steps: Caring for Community Archives workshop to as many people as possible.

The first stop is Inverness, with our friends at High Life Highland we have put together a full and informative day, to inspire and assist anyone working with community archive collections. We will start with a hands-on workshop with conservators on the handling, storage and environment of documents and photographic material, followed by presentations from experts on cataloguing, digitisation and digital preservation. The event will provide attendees with an insight into basic data protection and copyright legislation, explain how the Highland Archive Service and Am Baile can provide support to community archives, and for you to meet and network with others celebrating their local heritage.

It will be an opportunity to meet the experts, ask questions and debate the needs of community archives. You’ll learn something new, and take away new ideas to try out on your own archive collections.

We welcome participants from across the archives sector, but especially volunteers who work with community archives or groups. This is a perfect opportunity to meet experts in their field, learn the first steps of caring for collections and managing digital archival material.

We are running this workshop across Scotland, with future dates in Aberdeen, Oban, Hawick, and Stornoway planned. Visit the SCA website to keep up to date with all our events.
