  • London Metropolitan Archives (LMA): A video from LMA which includes tips on how to safely handle, store and clean vinyl and shellac discs in order to preserve them. https://youtu.be/lv4YAy-WjT 

  • Australian Society of Archivists: A Trauma-Informed Approach to Managing Archives: a new self-directed, globally accessible online course for archivists and recordkeeping professionals. Trauma-informed practice is a useful model to consider for professional archival practice that puts the focus on people within archives ensuring best practice access regimes, improved policies and practices, and support for everyone who works and uses the archives. You can watch a webinar about the course here. The course helps raise awareness of the effects of vicarious trauma and emotional labour and the need for resources to support people within the archival profession.
