Executive Summary 0.04 MB

Pickford, C.


SEMLAC commissioned this research report from Chris Pickford (Freelance Archival Consultant, and the author of the 2001 regional archive strategy Making Sense for Archives) with the aim of gaining a better understanding of the make-up and nature
of the archive domain in order to:

- Help balance the challenge SEMLAC faces of having to be accessible and responsive to the needs and aspirations of the South East’s diverse archival community on the one hand, but also able to channel its resources effectively in order to “make a difference” on the other
- Identify key players in the archives domain and, especially by identifying key allegiances, to find ways of encouraging participation and engagement by targeting initiatives with a sharper focus on the needs and aspirations of individual services
- Provide evidence to support bids for further archive development support in the region
- Directly benefit archives in the region in terms of helping them to form communities of interest leading to new partnerships.
