Autumn Meeting - 21 October 2019
Our next meeting will be held in conjunction with the Section for Specialist Repositories, at Kresen Kernow on Monday 21 October 2019. The theme will be partnership working and the day will include some case studies on different ways archive services are working with each other and different groups to improve the service and make it more accessible and attractive. It promises to be a good day, with the opportunity to go on a tour round the brand new Kresen Kernow as well.
