Shaping the Religious Archives Landscape

The National Archives, in in conjunction with the Religious Archives Group is holding a consultative meeting at The National Archives in Kew on the afternoon of Monday, 4 April (from 1215 to 1700) to discuss the findings and recommendations of the Religious Archives Survey 2010. There will be contributions from key partner organisations including the Religious Archives Group, Archives and Records Association, British Library, British Records Association and Ecclesiastical History Society.

The survey report is available at http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/religiousarchives/

I will be chairing a workshop on how religious archives can use new media including website archiving, video and oral history and social media. Maybe somebody told them I had a blog! Fr Stewart Foster, Brentwood diocesan archivist, will be speaking on the importance of religious archives to their creators.
