A message from David Sutton, Chair of GLAM:
Authors and their Papers has reached this, its latest form, in a pleasingly collaborative way. The absence of such a document, especially for literary authors, became a theme for discussion during the workshops run by the Diasporic Literary Archives Network, and a first draft was assembled by DLAN members. That draft was then edited and expanded from the perspective of literary archivists, by members of GLAM, and from the perspective of authors themselves, by staff of the Society of Authors. Following positive discussions at the GLAM meeting in Aberystwyth in September 2014 and the DLAN meeting at Yale University in October 2014, the new expanded version was given an extensive editorial revision by members of staff of the National Archives. We feel that it is now nearing its final version, but there is still time for GLAM members to offer further comments and suggestions. Please send your views and ideas to me directly (at firstname.lastname@example.org). Many thanks.
The Authors & their Papers publication is available here.
