Forum for School Museums and Archives Conference in Pietermaritzburg

The Forum for School Museums and Archives is having a conference in Pietermaritzburg on Saturday February 28, 2015 at St Nicholas Diocesan School under the theme “Collections Make Connections.” For curators of museums and archivists as well as senior management in historic schools it is a wonderful opportunity to interact with colleagues from other institutions as well as gain input from leaders in the field covering topics such as the formulation of archives policy, caring for archival materials, the importance of oral histories to running a museum on a small budget. I will be giving input on “Initiating the Digital Process” – how to go about building a digital archive from scratch that will last for generations to come. I do believe it is an opportunity not to be missed. Below are links to the conference programme and the registration form that you need to send through to Renee Alcock at Epworth Independent School. I encourage you to sign up now!
