Guidance Published by The National Archives

 

In May 2013 Janice completed the production of guidance on behalf of The National Archives. The guidance was designed for archive services considering moving towards a split-site service, where the majority of the collection was stored separately from the access point. The guidance was published on The National Archives website in Summer 2013.

 

Archive Service Accreditation Standard and Scheme completed

April 2013 saw the completion by the team of a 3 year project to scope, co-create and pilot a standard and scheme for Archive Services across the UK. This will become the main standard against which archive services will not only be assessed but will support archive services in their ongoing development.

 

Janice Tullock Associates have developed and advised this project since its infancy and have an in depth knowledge of the requirements of standard and application process. We are developing tools to assist clients that wish to become an accredited archive service. Contact us for further details.
