The National Archives plays host to FAUK members
FAUK was delighted to be offered the opportunity to hold their 118th quarterly meeting at The
National Archive on 2nd December 2015. As the UK’s cultural, academic and heritage institution and expert advisers in information and records management – the TNA was an apt and exciting venue for FAUK members who travelled from across the UK.
FAUK member Fleur Soper, Collections Knowledge Manager at TNA, kindly provided a delightful room for our meeting and delicious lunch.
Members were also treated to a tour behind the scenes, escorted by TNA’s Partnerships Manager, Gary Thorpe who gave us a tremendous insight into the extent of the archive’s amazing content, facilities and systems.
FAUK Chair, Frank Gray enjoyed a particular ‘Who Do You Think You Are’ experience with documents relating to his grandfather’s war records specially sourced for him to view whilst other members viewed other fascinating records including Suffragettes and ancient maps.
Nancy Bell, Head of Collection Care at TNA joined FAUK’s meeting to give a presentation –
‘An introduction to BFI and The National Archives – our working relationship’ with an overview of TNA’s long term relationship with the BFI who look after TNA’s films
Isobel Hunter, Head of Archives Sector Development also joined the meeting to tell us of her work and support for the archives.
FAUK look forward to an exciting year of meetings, workshops and discussions across the UK. More information on these dates and venues will be posted shortly.
