TNA - Revisiting Collections

The National Archives has an interesting blog post concerning an initiative called Revisiting Collections, a methodology for assisting in the cataloguing of archive collections that uses the experience of those who may have previously been concerned with the subject matter. The aim is to try to reflect a perspective of those affected or previously concerned with the collections within the relevant catalogue descriptions, rather than the humble opinions of the unattached archivist.

The blog post can be read at http://blog.nationalarchives.gov.uk/blog/interpreting-collections-or-archives-speak-with-many-voices/#more-1662
