Rhian Phillips | Through a Glass Darkly: Connecting Schools and Universities at Glamorgan Archives

On 4th September I’ll be speaking at the ‘Enhancing Impact, Inspiring Excellence’ Conference at the University of Birmingham.  The Conference, organised by the National Archives and the University of Birmingham in association with Research Libraries UK, aims to examine collaborative approaches between archives and universities.

Delegates will include academics, students and archivists who will be discussing existing partnerships and identifying new partnerships for the future.  The Conference will showcase collaborative projects between archives and academia, highlight good practice, and emphasise the benefits to both archives and universities that result from partnership working.

The day will be filled with a series of papers combined with shorter, more intensive case studies of particular projects.  As a non-academic I’m glad that I’ll be delivering one of the latter!  In my case study, I aim to explain how Charlotte Boman and I came to work together in partnership with support and funding from Afterlife of Heritage, the challenges we faced, and the opportunities offered by our collaboration.
