Taking steps to preserve charity archives

The newly appointed part-time researcher on a project which wants to help charities preserve their archives has written ‘Preserving your charity’s archives: first steps‘ for NCVO’s website.

The five year ‘Digitising the Mixed Economy of Welfare in Britain’ project is supported by the British Academy. There will be a launch event on 5th June in London, aimed at voluntary sector organisations of all sizes, especially those who need some advice about managing their archives. The project also wants to hear your questions about looking after archives and what your needs are.

Event details and registration for ‘Recording the Voluntary Sector’ is via Voluntary Sector Archives website. Note: the project started in summer 2014, see VoluntaryNews item from then.
