I have been approached by Lifelong Leaarning UK for comments on a 
questionnaire which it intendede to circulate to archives servives to 
gather information on the composition of the work force. 

I would emphahsise that the questionnaire will be going to all UK archive 
services LLUK can identify in the near future, and what we need at the 
moment is some comments from heads of archive services about the 
suitability of the form. I have circulated the form to several other local 
authority archivists but LLUK would like comments form other areas of the 
sector, such as business, HE etc so could I ask anyone interested in 
helping to read the email below and follow the link to the form. If this 
does not allow you access, email Zeeshan Rahman [[log in to unmask]] 
who will be able to send you the link to the draft. 

Any comments are needed by Wednesday 4th July, so apologies if this 
deadline is too tight to enable you to be involved at this stage, but as I 
say the final form of the survey will be fully distributed in the near 
future. Thanks in advance to anyone able to comment at this stage.

Hi,

We are about to conduct an online survey with various types of archives 
across England (and possibly the other UK countries in the near future) to 
collect profiling information about their staff. I have developed a 
questionnaire for this study, which has already incorporated feedback from 
the Society of Archivists and the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council. 
However, it is imperative that this questionnaire is tested in order to 
identify any problems before the survey starts. Therefore, I will be very 
grateful if you can test the questionnaire and provide any feedback that 
could help us improve it. I will do my best to incorporate as much of your 
feedback into this before it goes live.

There are two main elements that I would like you to look at: 
• Problems relating to the questionnaire itself e.g. routing problems, 
layout etc
• Problems relating to the question wording, comprehension, difficulty in 
providing answers

Please make a note of any problems that you encounter and inform me about 
these either on the phone or through an email. 

At this stage, you can simply estimate the answers for your service or can 
make them up if not working in an archive. However, the key is to consider 
the questions and think about problems that you or others could face in 
completing this questionnaire.

I will be grateful if you can go through the questionnaire and provide any 
feedback to me by Wednesday the 4th of July 2007.

Please start by looking at the email below, which will be sent to 
respondents asking them to complete the survey. Then click on the link 
within the email to start the survey. 

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you very much for your help.

Staff Survey of Archives


Dear Recipient,

Lifelong Learning UK is carrying out a study to learn about staff working 
in archives. This study is supported by groups and organisations such as 
the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council, the Society of Archivists and 
the Association of Chief Archivists in Local Government.

We have asked many organisations to help us with this study by taking part 
in an online survey and would be very grateful if you would help us by 
completing this questionnaire. The study will provide essential 
information on the profile of staff working in archives. Together with 
other research, this study will allow us to make recommendations on how 
training requirements can be best met within the sector as a whole.

All the information you provide will be treated as confidential in 
accordance with the Data Protection Act. You will not be identified in any 
research reports. The reports we produce will be available through our 
website at end of the project. It is important to the success of this 
study that everyone chosen takes part.

We recommend that the Head of the Archives Service completes this 
questionnaire. If you feel that another person in your organisation is 
better suited to complete this survey then please send this email to them.

It will be appreciated if the survey is completed by 3rd of July 2007. 
Please click on the link below to start the survey now.
