Dear friends,
I thought that some of you might be interested in this 
training day run by archivists.  Training days on 
other aspects of archive work are also available.  Contact 
Janet Foster for more details.  If anyone does go please 
report back for Cartographiti.
Best wishes

CONCURRENT PRACTICAL SESSIONS
Archives preservation is essentially a set of practical 
measures that the archives manager can institute as policy 
and procedure within the repository to maximise the 
longevity of the records in their care. These 
practical sessions have been designed to give participants 
the opportunity to learn about and try out some of these 
practical techniques. They cover paper documents, 
photographs and handling and packing. A fourth session is 
a workshop on policy and strategy development.

Handling, packing and preventative measures
A demonstration with examples of how to maximise the 
preservation of documents by good practice in handling and 
packing. Simple document cleaning and repair
This session will enable participants to observe and try 
out simple techniques for cleaning and repairing documents.
Handling photographs A practical session giving hands-on 
information about best practice when handling photographs.
Developing a conservation strategy/policy This is a 
workshop session that will give participants the 
opportunity to begin to develop their own ideas for a 
conservation strategy and/or policy for their repository.

PROSPECTUS FOR THE YEAR 2000
INTRODUCTION
The Basic Archive Skills Training Days (theBASTD) are an 
enterprise run in partnership by its directors, Margaret 
Crockett and Janet Foster. They are based on an original 
idea of Janet's developed jointly into the first training 
days and workshops run in the mid-1990's. Following a 
break theBASTD was re-launched in 1999 with a broader 
selection of training which offers not only the 
introductory courses and workshops but training days that 
focus in more detail on many areas of archives and records 
management principles and practice.
theBASTD is intended for anyone working in an archives or 
records management operaton who wishes to broaden or deepen 
their knowledge or understanding. With the accent on basic 
principles, the courses will be most suitable for archives 
and records assistants and those managing records and 
archives without formal qualifications, but line managers of
archivists, librarians and museum curators also find the 
courses give them an invaluable overview. The e-BASTD is 
slightly different from the other courses in that it has 
been designed with the intention of attracting anyone, 
regardless of level or qualifications, who is beginning to 
tackle the unique management issues surrounding electronic 
records. Every course is accompanied by a handbook which is 
specially tailored to the programme. This enables 
participants to concentrate on the presentations and 
workshops without the need to take copious notes. 
The handbook can be used subsequently in the workplace as a 
reference tool. One of the most important elements of the 
BASTD is the emphasis on practical methodology and the 
opportunity for participants to meet a variety of records 
professionals, who develop and implement solutions 
to fundamental records issues in their daily working 
environment. Drawing on their considerable knowledge of the 
national and international archives scene, the Course 
Directors include guest speakers to augment their own 
contributions and ensure interest and variety in the 
programme. The speakers are carefully chosen to reflect 
best current practice in all aspects of archives and 
records management and to provide the participants with 
learning materials based on a broad range of professional 
experience.
