Summer Seminar, National Records of Scotland, Edinburgh,...

Louise Williams Discussion started by Louise Williams 6 years ago

Hello everyone!

Just a reminder that there are still places available on the free Archives and Records Association Section for New Professionals Summer Seminar event, taking place in Edinburgh at the National Records of Scotland on Friday 21st June 2013. The day is an informal networking and training event aimed at recently-qualified professionals, students on training courses, volunteers and those interested in a career in the record-keeping professions. 

The Summer Seminar combines talks from experienced and new professionals, a panel-based Q&A discussion and a workshop session. The full event programme can be found here (please note that we are unable to provide lunch or delegate travel funding):
This year, our featured speakers focus on real-world work situations from two very different perspectives. Established archivist Richard Taylor is speaking on changes taking place at York City Archives and his work on the major HLF-funded project, Gateway to History, and new professional Chris Fryer will share his experiences of building a digital repository. In our panel session, experienced professionals share their perspectives on essential skills for job application forms and interview and will answer your questions. We'll also be holding a workshop on informal networking - a key skill in keeping ahead of a competitive job market. 
You can book by a place by contacting us on:
When you register, please let us know: your current role or university course; contact email and telephone details; and whether you would be willing for your contact email to appear in the delegate list.

With best wishes,


Communications Officer, Section for New Professionals
