London Metropolitan Archives took the Great Parchment Book project to Spain to the International Council on Archives annual conference in Girona which took place from 11 to 15 October 2014. The conference title was Arxius i Indústries Culturals (Archives and Cultural Industries).
LMA’s Laurence Ward gave a talk entitled ‘Archives Services in a Digital World’ in which he explored the ways LMA have used (and plan to use) partnerships and digital processes to improve access to collections. He featured the Great Parchment Book project as a highly specialised strand and an example of a strong partnership between the archives sector and the academic community. There were around 800 people in the audience, mostly archivists, from many different countries.
The Great Parchment Book project already features on the ICA website.
