The art of persuasion  – the National Council on Archives’ July meeting

 

The NCA met to discuss the wide variety of activity the Council is now involved in, with influencing and evidence at the heart of discussions.  The meeting was preceded by a presentation by Cathy Smith from The National Archives on The National Collections Strategy (NCS)

 

A busy start for the All Party Group on Archives

 

René Kinzett, NCA Head of Public Affairs, reported on the successful first meeting of the APG held at the River Room in the House of Lords on 8th July.  An expert panel was chaired by NCA patron Lisa Jardine.  Sue Wilkinson of MLA, Richard Ovenden of the Bodleian Library, and Natalie Ceeney of TNA spoke on key issues and welcomed questions from the floor.  René noted that Roy Clare mentioned the APG event at the NCA conference, making direct reference to comments made.

 

Furthermore a visit to TNA is being arranged for the group and a visit to Lambeth Palace has been requested.  René is compiling a list of potential visits for the APG and welcomed suggestions for visits to business archives, HE sector archives, local authority and community archives groups would also be welcome. 

 

It was agreed that it was important to show the APG how critical the position is on the ground but with a stress on what people do with finite resources and what could have been achieved with more.  Some key issues  it was hoped the APG could consideri ncluded the  Archives in the 21st Century policy document, the National Collections Strategy and the review of the 30 year rule.

 

René reminded the Council that at the NCA Conference Ed Vaizey pointed out that he (and other MP’s) would welcome an approach from local authorities with images and content for their constituency websites and visits to events.

 

Archives Awareness Campaign is taking shape – so take part!

 

The theme Take Your Place in History is the strap line for this year’s campaign and is being supported by the working group met is meeting regularly.  There will be a launch event on 5th November with the APG looking at Parliament’s place in shaping history.  Nationally the AAC is aiming to promote one event in each region with an advocacy input.  This will highlight projects and exhibitions, showcasing them to MPs and local authority members.  These events will be offered AAC support for organising the event, drawing up invite lists, and TNA press office support.  Events will go on across the whole sector.  Some suggestions to date include 60th anniversary of the NHS with an event organised by King’s College, London.  As well as these highlighted events the campaign will continue to promote local events.

 

The AAC press office position is being advertised  and it will be a  permanent position.  This role will be giving NCA support beyond the scope of AAC.  The NCA is grateful for TNAs support in this area.

 

It was agreed that linkages with the regions needs to be improved and that realistically services need to know this autumn what the campaign will be focused on in 2009 so that resources can be put into service business plans.

 

NCA Evidence Conference delivers valuable advice

 

Roy Clare, Ed Vaizey, Philip Mind from the LGA, and Geoff Pick  had given papers at the conference; four workshops ran in the afternoon followed by a presentation by Javier Stanziola of MLA.  Approximately 85 people attended.  It seemed to have been a very successful  and informative day. 100% delegates agreed the event was well organised and NCA will be analysing the full feedback forms to make sure the 2009 conference is even better. 

 

[Papers from the conference are available on the NCA website.]

 

Head of Public Affairs continues to develop sector’s profile

 

René reported that the Community Archives Wales event at the Welsh Senedd in Cardiff, which NCA helped to organise, event was very successful, There was a strong attendance by Assembly Members who received very clear message about the role of community archives. 

 

René has also developed a good dialogue with Ed Vaizey, Conservative Shadow Culture Minister who has made clear he wants to be kept informed of progress on the sector review.

 

Finally,  the Head of Public Affairs and the NCA Director of Communication are working on redeveloping the NCA website.  René Kinzett has met with CBJ Digital to look at improving the structure of the NCA website.  It will be more user friendly with good signposting and a members’ area.  The site will have increased functionality.

 

Archive Lottery Adviser warns against funding pessimism

 

Louise Ray, the Archive Lottery Adviser, noted that we are in an era of more competition and less funding.  However, she emphasised that we should not be overly negative:  Projects are still eligible for funding.  In response to questions Louise also explained that   cataloguing can be funded but only as an element of a wider project therefore there is potential to ask for cataloguing to be a small percentage.

 

Public Services Quality Group visitor survey set to get bigger

 

After several years of successful on-site surveys PSQG is planning a distance enquiry survey for January – March 2009 after the success of a pilot project. Meanwhile the visitor survey 2007 results are available on the IPF website.  Discussions have taken place on the next visitor survey which is to take place May/ June 2009. 

 

PSQG is also bringing a variety of other initiatives to fruition.  The Access standard is now complete and includes an action plan template Also, the security and access work group is producing a security standard.  A national registration card for archives readers is being considered.

 

The PSQG forum 2008 is being held 5th November named “Dream Teams”.  The cost will be £65 and will be advertised shortly.

 

CADG becomes the Community Archive and Heritage Group

 

The group has had a change of name to cover the wider range of organisations which the Group now aimed to include. It’s successful 2008 Conference highlighted the amount of community work taking place throughout the wider sector and the desire to find further investment and funds for sustaining projects.  Council was reminded of  the MLA sponsored landscape research into community archives which is available from the MLA office.  This work will be developed further by MLA and CAHG over the coming months.

 

Other news  from NCA members

 

The sector review by consultants Firetail is well underway and NCA will be fully involved through member and stakolder interviews.

 

The annual review on ROPSI (Reuse of Public Sector Information) has been published demonstrating how  FOI and DPA are increasingly on the governments agenda.  The National Archives is widely seen as the lead on public sector information regulation in Europe.

At MLA the National team has moved and is on target to announce plans in September.   Council thanked Justin Cavernelis Frost, who is due to leave MLA,  for all his efforts for NCA.

For information see http://www.archivoymemoria.com/index_en.htm The themes are " 1- Documental heritage and repression. This session will focus on the documental heritage that is kept hidden or inaccessible with the aim of controlling public opinion and preventing the disclosure of certain facts. Repression can manifest itself in many ways and in many senses; we are referring not only to a political or explicitly ideological sphere, but also to segregation or neglect on the grounds of ethnic origin, gender, religion, class or sexual orientation. 2- The destruction of documents: prevention, conservation and recovery. On many occasions, archives are deliberately destroyed, as a means of erasing memory, or owing to military conflicts or natural disasters. On other occasions they are successfully protected or recovered. It would be interesting to examine both processes: the situations in which documents have been destroyed, and the consequences that this has entailed, and those in which they have been successfully preserved or recovered, and the experiences and methods through which this has been achieved, as well as the projects and actions carried out to ensure that systematic destructions cannot happen again. 3- Conflicts, identities and archives. The final session will aim to describe, explain and analyse, through documents, the conditions and characteristics of different types of conflict. The main contraventions and infringements of the right to life, physical integrity, freedom and individual and political, economic, social and cultural rights often entail the plundering of heritage and attacks on social and cultural identity, which then have to be reconstructed. The documental heritage represents the historical and social memory of these violations of human rights and fundamental liberties." ++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Margaret Procter LUCAS School of History 9 Abercromby Sq Liverpool L69 7WZ 0151 794 2411 www.liv.ac.uk ========================================================================Date: Wed, 24 Sep 2008 10:34:09 +0100 Reply-To: "Ray, Louise" <[log in to unmask]> Sender: "Archivists, conservators and records managers." <[log in to unmask]> From: "Ray, Louise" <[log in to unmask]> Subject: Upcoming Lottery Workshops MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="----_=_NextPart_001_01C91E28.B2471A0F" This is a multi-part message in MIME format. ------_=_NextPart_001_01C91E28.B2471A0F Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable Apologies for cross-postings The Archive Lottery Advisory Service is pleased to announce two forthcoming 'Your Heritage' workshops.

Booking queries: Mandy Bauer ([log in to unmask]; tel. 01793 417472) In keeping with the last year's successful event the MetaKnowledge Mash-up 2007, BCS KIDMM (http://www.kidmm.org) and ISKO UK (http://www.kidmm.org) have joined efforts to organize a follow-up event. Knowledge management professionals know that much of the knowledge which drives a successful organisation derives from its communities, both formal and informal; and that knowledge can be used and shared more easily if it is organized. In many organisational contexts, be they businesses, government departments, professional associations and social enterprises, a lot of the most useful knowledge is not contained in documents and other written forms; it is in peoples' heads. Before knowledge organisation can begin, there is already the challenge of eliciting and formulating what people know. What are the methods and tools that can help in these processes? If knowledge organisation (KO) is at work the instant we open our mouths or tap on a keyboard, how and to what degree should we formalize it in our communities, whether face-to-face or virtual? Perhaps different techniques apply in each circumstance? These are some of the questions surrounding KM and KO in the Web 2.0 age that we hope will be raised and discussed on October 9th. The speakers have been selected because they have case-study stories to tell, and there will also be participative round-table exercises. If we can also find some answers, that will be a bonus! Speakers and contributors include: Alan Pollard, Conrad Taylor, Marilyn Leask, Jan Wyllie, Lyndsay Rees-Jones, Christopher Dean, Sabine K McNeill and Susan Payne.

Could you be the National Council on Archives’ first Web Editor?

 

Why does the NCA need a Web Editor?

The NCA is seeking an enthusiastic individual to take on the voluntary role of Web Editor. The NCA is growing in prominence as it develops its advocacy work amongst decision-makers and it needs a website to match.  The website is currently being restructured and will be an important tool for promoting the work of the Council as well as providing information and a communication channel for NCA audiences.  Consequently, the NCA has decided to appoint a Web Editor to undertake responsibility for the content of its website.

 

What are the Webs Editor’s responsibilities?

Simply put the Editor’s role is to ensure that the website is up-to-date, engaging and relevant for defined audiences.  The website is currently being restructured after careful analysis of audiences.  To make sure that this restructuring is effective it is vital that content is carefully managed.  In particular the Editor will be expected to:

 

  • Manage content - ensuring it is up-to-date, appropriately placed on the website and readily accessible to NCA on-line audiences.  This includes archiving old information, managing links to other websites and possibly editing content to desired length.
  • Upload content supplied by NCA officers and staff promptly and to appropriate locations.
  • Help to generate ideas for content and commission content where appropriate.
  • Liaise closely with the Director of Publicity and the Head of Public Affairs to ensure relevant, fresh content.
  • Quality control: ensuring accuracy, maintaining house style.
  • Monitor web usage statistics and advise on website content accordingly.

·         Collaborate with  NCA officers and staff to promote the NCA’s work and publications 

·         Manage web users’ feedback

·         Work in cooperation with NCA officers and staff to consolidate a web-friendly writing “house style” and create an overall tone for the website, including editing content for its tone.

·         Liaise with the website designers when appropriate.

 

Whilst the work would be variable in its quantity on average it is expected to be about three hours a week. The Web Editor would not be expected to attend NCA meetings unless relevant to their work.

What skills should the Manager have?

The Manager is not expected to have specific web editing skills.  The NCA site uses simple tools that are easy to learn and the Council employs an external consultancy to undertake technical development.  However, the Manager should have the following skills:

·    Awareness of the archival sector

·    Willingness to learn about the NCA’s work

·    Attention to detail

·    Strong communication skills

·    Excellent writing skills

·    Good grasp of grammar, punctuation and spelling

·    Ability to meet deadlines

·    Creativity

 

This post would particularly suit a candidate on the Society of Archivists’ Registration Scheme.

FURTHER INFORMATION: [log in to unmask]

LGBT history and heritage ideas are going from strength to strength. But what are the challenges around collecting, conserving and communicating the history of LBGT people and who and what is that history for? Come and join us for a day of talks, Q&A sessions and workshops and find out more.

Over the years LGBT communities have seen the development of a number of initiatives which set out to record, collect, celebrate and give access to important community histories.  A lot of hard work has resulted in some highly successful projects, a number of which will be marked on the day. But there is always room for debate and this year’s conference sets out to open up some important questions.

Heritage Versus History.  ‘Heritage’ is a term with real currency but do we want to be drawn into the ‘Heritage’ machine. Do modern heritage agendas reshape and distort history?

Preaching to the Converted? What are the histories for and who is being reached?

Why do you want my stuff? Approaches to gathering histories – can these help or hinder? Collection? What collection?

Raising Awareness or Provoking a Reaction? Have history based initiatives really changed things?

The day will explore a range of projects old and new and consider how different approaches to recording, collecting and making accessible meet the needs of the depositor, the community and those wanting to learn more from the material. Important debates will be raised about the effectiveness of the current use and exploitation of ‘heritage’ as a means of social engineering , information exchange and revisiting / reshaping  the past and the impact such approaches might have on a more formal view of history.

Dear All

I've had a suggestion that it would be worth spelling out LGBT for people in relation to the conference publicised last week.

LGBT is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered and BLGBT is Black Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered.

All the best

It will focus on the various options for owners of collections to consider when looking at the sustainability of their archives in the long term. Traditionally companies have maintained and run archives within the structure of the company, but now some are looking at alternatives to this by considering a move to create trusts, work in partnership, or donate their collections to other bodies such as Universities or public sector record offices. Fundraising has also become more of an issue with HLF and other funding bodies being prepared to consider projects which include business archive collections. The BAC Conference will present options which have already been adopted by some archives, with expert information and a series of case studies highlighting these strategies. The Conference will be of relevance to all business archivists and also those with an interest in the sustainability and access to our heritage collections. The speakers will include Joan Heggie of the British Steel Collection, Teresa Wilmshurst of the Waterways Trust and Richard Taylor of the National Railways Museum.
