Archives Sector website launched | The National Archives, UK

Archives Sector website launched | The National Archives, UK | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

"The new Archives sector website has launched today, providing guidance and information for everyone who works with or within archives.
The website brings together strategic and practical resources for archives across the country to develop their collections and services and improve the experience of their users. It provides a place for archives to share learning and to promote their best practice. We consulted with our users and carried out extensive testing to create the website, which will continue to evolve as new initiatives such as the Archives Accreditation standard roll out."

 

"These pages contain strategic and practical resources for archives to develop their collections and services and improve the experience of their users. As sector leader for archives in England, we work with all custodians of records, from private owners to publicly-funded services. By working together, we will realise the true potential of archives to benefit and inspire more people of all ages and backgrounds."

Envisioning the library of the future - online survey

Online survey:

 

"This website aims to capture your views on the purpose and value of public libraries.

This is part of a piece of research entitled Envisioning the library of the future, commissioned by Arts Council England. This programme of research will inform the development of the Arts Council’s long-term vision for public libraries in England. This research began in February 2012, with the findings due to be published in a final report in the Autumn 2012.

Along with this online element, we are also undertaking focused research in face-to-face workshops with members of the public in various parts of the country so that we have a wide range of people contributing to our discussion and developing ideas.

The website is open for receiving your comments until Sunday 21 October 2012."
