DENBIGHSHIRE ARCHIVES ACHIEVES NATIONAL ACCREDITATION

July 20, 2017

We are very pleased to announce that we have been awarded Archive Service Accreditation.

Accredited Archive Services ensure the long-term collection, preservation and accessibility of our archive heritage. Accreditation is the UK quality standard which recognises good performance in all areas of archive service delivery. Achieving accredited status demonstrates that we have met clearly defined national standards relating to management and resourcing; the care of its unique collections and what the service offers to its entire range of users.

Craig Berry, Business Information Team Manager, commented: “This award is recognition of Denbighshire Archive Service’s success in collecting, preserving and making accessible the county’s incredibly rich archive heritage and reflects both the skill and care of our dedicated workforce. To achieve accreditation, every aspect of how we manage our collections has been scrutinised and found to meet UK-wide standards. The award also acknowledges the service’s recent modernisation transformation programme, which is helping to ensure that it meets the needs of visitors and those that access digitally through the service’s enhanced online presence.”

The Archive Service Accreditation assessors noted that “Denbighshire Archive Service has undertaken a strategic review of provision, targeting resources effectively to transform its approach through the development of online services and has made excellent progress in developing and promoting its resources and services online. The service has also extended its work with volunteers by introducing a programme for virtual volunteering.”
