Event description

Description

Aimed at anyone collecting archives, including digital files, this one-day course will introduce the key basic actions to ensure those documents can be used to their full potential, now and in the future.

Professional archivists and conservators will explain how to:

  • Publicise your organisation and network with other groups

  • Write a collection policy

  • Record ownership and copyright information

  • Package and store archives using appropriate materials in the best way to minimise damage

Delegates will have the chance to meet with other people who collect archives relating to their community or special interest. The NRO will also be launching an online network which will enable community archives to share successes and ask questions. The event will be suitable for those people who are just starting to collect, as well as more experienced collectors.

This session is part of the NRO's Supporting Norfolk's Archive Ecology programme.
