Update: Guide to Collaboration

Image of launch eventHere are some quick updates on the Guide to Collaboration between the Archive and Higher Education Sectors (2018 update). The TNA’s Higher Education Archives Programme (HEAP) has published a short introduction to the guidance (accessible here) for those who want to publicise the guidance at their own institutions.

There’s also been a nice post from Katie Flanagan (a.k.a. Katie the Librarian) on our workshop to launch the guidance back in June (here), of which Caroline Sampson has provided some excellent images. As you can see, it was a very active event!

Published: Guide to Collaboration between the Archive and Higher Education Sectors

Over the past year, History UK has worked together wit the The National Archives and the Higher Education Archive Programme (HEAP) to update the Guide to Collaboration between the Archive and Higher Education Sectors, which was published last week. The guide is supported by innovative case studies from across the archives and higher education sectors. It gives insights into the drivers, initiatives, support and language of both sectors and offers advice on identifying organisational and project priorities. It also explains how to understand outputs and outcomes in mutually beneficial projects and offers advice for measuring impact in cross-sector collaborations.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to putting together this guide. We hope that it is the start of an ongoing collaboration with TNA!
