Newly accredited archive services announced
The UK Archive Service Accreditation Partnership yesterday announced that three archive services have been awarded accredited status at a recent Archive Service Accreditation Panel.
HSBC Archives, National Arts Education Archives and Oxford Brookes University Special Collections have achieved the UK national standard for archive services, demonstrating a commitment to management and resourcing, the care of unique collections and the service offer to their entire range of users. The three archive services are the first to achieve Archive Service Accreditation since the refresh of the standard and documentation in June 2018.
Archive Sector Accreditation is supported by a partnership of the Archives and Records Association (UK), Archives and Records Council Wales, National Records of Scotland, Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, Scottish Council on Archives, The National Archives and the Welsh Government through its Museums, Archives and Libraries Wales division.
