Join us at the Cadbury Research Library for the October GLAM members meeting.
12noon – 12:45 Welcome and Members’ updates
12:45 – 2:00pm Lunch and visit to exhibition at the Barber Institute, on the Indian sub-continent
2:00pm – 3:30pm GLAM Open Forum
3.30pm – 4:00pm Reports and business from the Committee
We plan in this meeting for the main focus to be a GLAM Open Forum.
Members are encouraged to bring questions and raise issues within their work that are current for them. There will be an opportunity to engage with members of the committee who will speak and facilitate discussion around 1) Valuations of archives and the current landscape with the Acceptance in Lieu and Cultural Gifts Schemes, and 2) working with depositors, particularly in times of distress. These are two themes that emerged from the recent Members’ Survey but colleagues are encouraged to bring any other key issues and to be ready to share experiences and draw on the collective knowledge of the Group.
Chatham House rules will apply.
The Cadbury Research Library is on the Lower Ground floor of a 12 story building. The building is called Muirhead Tower. If people get lost, ask for Starbucks (that is in the foyer of our building). Come down to the LG floor and ask at the reception area for the GLAM meeting.
