We think these two modules work well together, but if you'd like to attend only one, please get in touch.

These modules are aimed at people with little or no previous archive or record keeping knowledge.

Introduction to managing your collections:

  • Are people offering you their old documents and photos?
  • Does your community have an “archive cupboard” known only to a few?
  • Do you find yourself responsible for precious archive material?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, this module can help.

We will look at how to:

  • decide what items to collect
  • organise and keep track of what you’ve got
  • share your treasures and involve more people in their local heritage.

Introduction to digital preservation

  • Are you responsible for looking after precious archive material, some of which is digital?
  • Are key digital records sitting on your laptop?
  • Will you need to access digital records in the future?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, this module can help.

We will look at how to keep your digital records:

  • secure
  • accessible
  • meaningful
