Collections development and care
Find case studies below on collections management and development and care of archival collections.
Cataloguing collections and engaging communities
The project was set up to investigate, catalogue and make accessible the Music Hall archives collected over a period of 50 years by writer, actor and comedian Roy Hudd.
This project aimed to make more accessible papers from the First World War Military Service Tribunals by digitising the records and making them searchable by name through Discovery, the online catalogue. Volunteers helped prepare the papers for conservation work and eventual scanning.
This project resulted in a specific archive accession which represented the lives of the LGBT community in Plymouth through the collection of oral histories, papers, photographs and memorabilia.
