Collection Processing
The core skill of the archivist is collection processing.  Our archivists have a wide range of experience listing and arranging collections in a number of formats including: paper and parchment, photographic collections and audio-visual material. We can produce finding aids in traditional descriptive list format or databases for computer-based searches.

We can carry out basic preservation management for you such as drying, decontamination, removal of staples/tags and flattening and storage of documents in high quality acid-free folders and boxes. We can advise on negotiation for more advanced conservation and rebinding, and are familiar with BS5454, the standard which refers to the storage and exhibition of archival material.

We can design and produce exhibitions and publications based on archival collections.
