The ARA Volunteering Sub Committee has recently commissioned some research from Caroline Williams into the Impact of Volunteering in Archives. This research has produced new information about the social, human, economic and cultural impacts of volunteering. It reflects how these impacts relate to individual volunteers, services, and the profession. It particularly considers the impact of specific, less-explored areas of the archive sector such as business archives, HEIs and charities.

The final report can be found here.

The Action Plan for the ARA Volunteering Sub Committee has also recently been published and can be found here.
