Archives, Artefacts, Amateurs and Academics conference

Booking is now open for the Archives, Artefacts, Amateurs & Academics conference in Derby on 20th and 21st April 2012. 

This workshop, organised and supported by the Business Archives Council and the Historical Model Railway Society, seeks to explore and expand co-operation between volunteer-led societies involved in the transport heritage and business history fields and the academics, archivists and museum professionals working in the same areas.

The event aims to prompt an awareness of what these various groups are doing, and to start a dialogue between the enthusiast and academic which may lead to co-operation in preserving and using collections, and furthering our understanding of the past and its relevance to the future.
