Training and events

Due to Covid-19, we are not currently running in-person events, however we continue to offer virtual events and e-learning. For the lastest news, please visit our coronavirus update webpage. 

We offer training to develop skills, knowledge and understanding within the archives sector. Our training sessions are relevant from both an organisational and individual perspective. Please email us if you would like more information about any of our sessions.

Most of our training sessions are free, and bookings are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. If you’re unable to cover the cost of travelling to one of our events, please get in touch and we’d be happy to discuss this.

We have a limited number of spaces available at each session. Because of this, please only book if you are able to attend, and contact us if you can no longer attend.

DCDC21: Call for papers

DCDC21 will be a fully virtual conference held from 28 June until 2 July 2021 and organised by JISC, Research Libraries UK and The National Archives. DCDC21 is now inviting proposals in a range of formats on the theme of ‘catalysts for change’. The conference will explore how crisis can act as a catalyst for change within libraries, archives, museums and cultural organisations. It will look at the impact that crisis can have on working practices, collections and audience engagement, and how periods of turbulence can lead to new opportunities for research and collaboration.
