UK Archive Service Accreditation – Free Information Seminar & Policy Writing Workshop

Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI)
Friday 8th December
1.30pm – 16.00

Do you work in an archive or an organisation which holds archive material?

Archive Service Accreditation is the UK management standard for archives, supported by a partnership of archives and professional bodies. This free half-day seminar will be a chance to find out more about the programme, its structure and content, and how to make an application. You will also find out how Accreditation can be used to support archive services even if they are not currently expecting to make an application.

The session will conclude with a participatory workshop drafting a management policy for a small archive service, which will show how clear policies can support effective working – and take the fear out of policy-writing!
