‘Archives’ can be paper records, maps, plans, photos, prints, films, tapes, computer files or any form of recording which are intended to be preserved and discovered by future generations. An archivist’s job could be to curate, maintain, preserve, exploit or communicate this preserved past. This role requires skills in organisation, project management, communication and customer service, and often involves developing an in-depth knowledge of the subject matter.
We will be joined by Nottingham alumnus and special guest Simon Robbins, Senior Archivist at the Imperial War Museum, who will be talking about his experience of the sector and giving advice for students hoping to make inroads into this type of work.
