The Bowes Museum’s project ‘Managing and developing Archive Volunteers’ contributions, led by Jane Whittaker and Judith Phillips, aims to involve members of the volunteer team (about 30 people) in recording their individual contribution and its impact on overall progress, as well as identifying potential additional tasks. The project has been developed since September 2011 with volunteer input.

Hull History Centre has achieved the status for its project on ‘A thematic approach to Hull City Council’s cataloguing backlog’. The innovative project, led by Carol Tanner,  achieved a survey and a scheme to prioritise the backlog work.
