#ArchiveHour on Twitter

We were incredibly excited to be the first hosts of #archivehour on 26 October 2017 when our topic of discussion was digital preservation. #archivehour continues on the last Thursday of each month when you'll be able to get involved, asking and answering questions on key issues in the archive sector. We look forward to seeing you there!
