Next Steps: Caring for Community Archives Webinar Series

26 January 2021

Next Steps: Caring for Community Archives webinar series, presented in partnership between the Scottish Council on Archives and National Records of Scotland. These 30 minute sessions are designed to provide an enjoyable and informative insight for anyone working or volunteering in community archives and heritage groups.

Following on from our popular First Steps: Caring for Community Archives workshops held across the country, this new webinar series will develop skills and ideas, exploring topics in more detail. The webinars are free to attend and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and discuss any particular concerns or ideas you have.

Running on Monday mornings (10:30-11:00) come along to as many as you like. It will be an enjoyable, interactive, and practical session, beginning with an expert giving a short presentation followed by discussion and an opportunity to ask your questions. You can even send your questions in advance – and we will try and get through as many as we can.
