In an ever-evolving digital age, institutions with archives are having to reconceptualise how they develop and catalogue their material, and the ways in which they engage with audiences. We are all grappling with questions that concern how archival collections can remain relevant. For example, how can special collections and historic libraries, which traditionally contain and preserve print-based material, adapt most effectively to the changing digital environment? How can we improve and expand methods of resource discovery to meet the expectations of digitally literate users?
This conference, sponsored by Heritage Lottery Fund and the Independent Libraries Association, will explore new developments in the archiving sector and what the future holds for its systems and processes, whilst scrutinising established standards and best practice. If you would like to submit papers for the conference, details are available at https://www.theportico.org.uk/news.
