ACAI Workshop ‘Developing and Managing a Religious Archives Service’

 

Association for Church Archives of Ireland

 

This half-day workshop is aimed members of religious congregations or dioceses who are at an early stage of dealing with their archives or who, having done some work on their records, are now seeking to develop their service through the employment of a professional archivist. The workshop will cover the initial stages of establishing intellectual control over the archive, deciding what kind of records are worthy of long- term preservation, and how to develop a policy to deal with the future acquisition of material.

The second part of the workshop will discuss the practical steps needed to establish an archive in terms of considering the physical space in which material should be stored, the costs involved in developing a service, the management structures required, and how to employ a professionally trained archivist. Case study presentations on the day will report on developing an overarching archives policy for a religious order, discuss the experiences of an employer and an archivist working in a religious congregation and describe the development of a coherent managerial structure for a religious archives service.
