A discussion list about the records, archives and history of voluntary and community sector
The list was set up in 2012 as part of the Campaign for Voluntary Sector Archives, and has
since been maintained by the British Academy Research Project Digitising the Mixed
Economy of Welfare in Britain. This is a collaborative, interdisciplinary project that
promotes the preservation of voluntary sector archives, which are increasingly vulnerable in
a period of austerity. We see the archives and records of voluntary organisations as
strategic assets for governance, corporate identity, accountability and research.
