Handling the Past
A day to learn about and discuss training methods for
29 June 1999
11 am-4:30 pm

The Public Record Office is holding a one day forum for a limited
number of participants to discuss the issues relating to training
staff in the proper handling and care of archival and library
material.  It will be directed in particular to the training of
non-specialist staff who, nevertheless, carry much of the
responsibility for good practice within archives and libraries. Some
organisations have developed programmes specially adapted to these
staff who frequently respond very positively to such training; come
and learn some tips, pick up some good ideas and contribute your own

Three case studies will be given in the morning and the afternoon
will be devoted to discussion on various ways of approaching this
very common, but often overlooked problem.  The final session will
draw together ideas for participants to adapt to their own
circumstances and point the way towards further co-operative work.

The forum will be held at the Public Record Office, where coffee
will be available from 10.30. Lunch will be provided and afternoon
tea before the final session. The fee for the day is UKP30 which is
payable on registration. Those wishing to participate should
complete the following form and return it before 11 June 1999 to:
