Working in archives

07 February

The online platform that brings together stakeholders from across the UK to debate and create the new Archives Accreditation standard is now live. Find out what everyone is talking about and contribute your views and expertise in our new platform. 

This is not a consultation, but rather a new way of working which allows partners and stakeholders to engage in ongoing discussion, constructive debate and collaboration and together define the new standard.

Each week a new topic will be introduced as we systematically build the standard section by section. So don't forget to keep coming back. You can also join the Twitter debate at #archivesaccreditn.

Find out more about the Archives Accreditation Scheme.

Last chance to join the webinar

Our webinar, which introduces this collaborative process, is taking place 9 February, 10:00-12:00. If you would like to attend, you will need a computer with internet access, and a sound card. If you have never attended an Adobe Connect meeting before you can test your connection online and get a quick overview. To receive an invitation to the webinar, please email

We look forward to working with you in shaping what it means to be an archive in the 21st century.
