Description:

A collaborative conference between the University of Birmingham and The National Archives, in association with Research Libraries UK, generously supported by Adlib Information Systems.

This conference will bring together archivists, academics, and students to discuss the ways in which archives and universities can work together, strengthen existing partnerships, and identify those for the future.

The conference will take the format of a series of practice-led case studies examining ways in which academics, archives, and universities are already working together and how these relationships can be developed and shared. It will highlight the important role archives can play in supporting universities in teaching and research, the means of developing joint initiatives, and areas of future collaboration.

Venue: University of Birmingham
