As Information Management Consultants we often get asked to share the knowledge and experience that we have built up through our work at The National Archives and with government departments. We do this in a number of different ways:
- We run training sessions in aspects of information management, such as digital continuity and appraisal, for central government
- We hold the Information Management Liaison Group one day event four times a year for central government which consists of workshops and talks around a particular theme
- We present at national and international events and conferences
- We speak to students, academics and representatives from other archives around the world
There is a huge value in having face to face sessions like these. They give us a chance to share important messages around best practice in information management. Those who attend get the opportunity to network and share their thoughts and experience with other like-minded people. It also helps us to promote the importance of The National Archives’ work and further advance our reputation in the field of information management.
