Annual Report 2019-2020

RAG’s annual report is now available here: Annual General Meetings

As our conference this year has had to be postponed, our AGM cannot be held at the moment. The report demonstrates that the group has made progress on a number of fronts including the production of guidance, the provision of training, and the implementation of our small grants scheme. The committee remains determined to support members as much as possible during this difficult time. We have already produced guidance for researchers on online resources and made it available on our website. In the meantime, please let us know if there are any issues the committee can usefully address.

 

Guidance for Religious Communities

 

18/06/20: This has now been updated to version 6. Please take a look

RAG has now published new guidance on the care of the archives of religious communities, available to download here

This focuses on the historic records of Christian religious communities within the UK, though much of the advice will also be relevant to communities within other faiths. It is aimed at community members or staff without professional training who may be assigned responsibility for archives, and encourages good stewardship in preserving these historic records for the future
