An invitation for hands-on volunteering for map preservation
(You don’t have to be a map specialist to help. I’m not!)
Land boundaries, property valuations or disputed rights of way – this unique information from Inland Revenue Valuation maps is at risk of damage and loss during access. And we need your help to improve the protection of these cartographic documents.
So The National Archives’ Collection Care team is inviting enthusiastic volunteers interested in history, preservation and archival practice to participate in its long-standing map rehousing project. Allowing for personal time and holidays, our volunteers will generally contribute one day a week for the next seven months, preferably Mondays, arranged to suit everyone in the team.
