Devon Rural Archive - Shilstone

Training event for local history groups

As part of a round up to our 'All Our Stories project we will be staging a training day at the Devon Rural Archive (DRA) on Tuesday 14th January 2014.  Open to all local history groups the event will include a session on digital recording with Ian Phillips who was formerly with the BBC and a broadcasting session with Lucinda Guy of Soundart local radio.

There will be information on facilities and resources at both the DRA and the Kingsbridge Cookworthy Museum as well as guidance in scanning and cataloguing images together with   caring for  and sharing collections. The aim is to bring local groups up to date with what is on offer from these local centres and to promote a range of methods of sharing information gathered via ongoing work.  Groups will be sent more detailed information shortly
