Call for papers 

ARA WED 73The Archives and Records Association, UK and Ireland will hold its 2018 Conference in Glasgow between 29 and 31 August 2018. Appropriately, our theme is ‘People Make Records’. Well we couldn’t possibly go to Glasgow and ignore its famous ‘People make Glasgow’ strapline: people-driven industry, innovation, culture and heritage; a meeting place of people from all cultures yet distinctively Scottish.

Our venue for 2018 – the Grand Central Hotel - encapsulates all of these virtues. A refurbished nineteenth-century railway hotel in the heart of the city, it positively oozes history. In 1927 it was the Glasgow destination for John Logie Baird’s first-ever broadcast of television pictures in the UK – sent over 400 miles on telephone lines from London. The list of famous guests includes Laurel & Hardy, Frank Sinatra, John F Kennedy, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.

We invite proposals for the Conference. As usual there will be streams encompassing archives and records, conservation, and digital preservation. Contributions are welcomed from across the UK and Ireland, and from colleagues in the global recordkeeping community. The full Call for Papers is here.
