Following the awareness days held recently at the National Archives, the National Preservation Office would like to offer a similar event in Scotland, based at UKArchiving, Sighthill, Edinburgh. The provisional date is 8 June. The event will be confirmed if there is sufficient demand. At this stage, I am asking all who would be interested in attending to contact me by email [log in to unmask] .



The National Preservation Office Preservation Microfilming Group has arranged an Awareness Day open to library and archive staff involved in creating microfilm surrogates.


Venue: UK Archiving

11 Bankhead Medway

Sighthill Industrial Estate


EH11 4BY


 Time: 11 am-4pm.


Speakers from the NPO Preservation Microfilm Group will cover a range of topics, including British Standards, good practice based on the NPO Guide to Preservation Microfilming, training for operators, quality assurance and the implications of digitisation. Staff from UKArchiving will show participants round the studio and demonstrate equipment.


Who should attend: All those involved in preservation microfilming. The day will be particularly useful to those who undertake microfilming on a small scale and wish to update their knowledge and skills. It will be an opportunity to share experience with other practitioners.


There is no charge for the day but a contribution of £5 towards catering costs may be requested.
