Archive services achieve accreditation for a second time
The UK Archive Service Accreditation Committee are pleased to announce that Lancashire Archives and London Metropolitan Archives have been awarded accredited status for the second time.
By attaining accreditation, archive services demonstrate that they meet the UK standard for collections management and access to collections, showing resilience and the ability to manage changing circumstances successfully.
This has been vital to granting awards during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, which has presented exceptional challenges to archive services.
All accredited archive services must apply again six years after their initial award to retain their accredited status.
A full list of accredited archive services is available here.
Archive Service Accreditation is supported by a partnership of the Archives and Records Association (UK), Archives and Records Council Wales, National Records of Scotland, Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, Scottish Council on Archives, The National Archives, and the Welsh Government through its Museums, Archives and Libraries Wales division.
