Archiving the arts: resourcesWe want your activities, advice and initiatives to be as wide-ranging, relevant and helpful as possible to those caring for arts archives. SurveysWe gathered knowledge of arts archives through targeted surveys to archives, arts organisations, artists, funders and strategic bodies. The responses we received enabled us to add descriptions for well over 200 collections to the National Register of Archives, which is now available on the Discovery platform. Advice and guidanceA large part of our work focused on advising those who look after arts archives on their care and management. This ranged from guidance on the best places to find funding for a particular project, practical advice on storage and access, to help with negotiations around the deposit of a collection in an established archive service. We have gathered a range of useful resources together to help you look after records and archives of the arts. If you think there is something missing, need further advice or have information on archives of the arts of creative re-use of archives that you would like to share, please email us.
