I have been busily preparing an advocacy pack to accompany me when I go to see prospective jobs. So far this consists of Frequently Asked Questions section ( this covers the range of questions from what is a record, why archivists are needed and how and why we appraise and then catalogue records) and simplistic cataloguing diagrams. I have tried to keep it short and snappy but still giving information they would hopefully think helpful.
I do intend to tailor sections to help each individual client, as each new job seems to have a different emphasis on what is needed. If anyone else can think of an essential question I am not answering then do let me know :)
Questions on a postcard please!
