Summer Seminar 2013, Edinburgh

After two successful events in London and Manchester, the ARA Section for New Professionals’ annual Summer Seminar training event is coming to the National Records of ScotlandEdinburgh, on Friday 21st June 2013. The day is an informal networking and training event, combining talks from experienced and new record-keeping professionals, a panel-based discussion session and a workshop session.

This year, our featured speakers focus on real-world work situations from two very different perspectives. Established archivist Richard Taylor is speaking on changes taking place at York City Archives and his work on a major HLF-funded project and new professional Chris Fryer will share his experiences of building a digital repository. In our panel session, experienced professionals share their perspectives on essential skills for job candidates for application forms and interview and will answer your questions. We’ll also be holding a workshop on informal networking – a key skill in keeping ahead of a competitive job market.

For more information and details of how to book visit Places at the session are free but extremely limited and always fill up fast, so book your place now!

I look forward to seeing you there,


Emily Gresham, SfNP Publicity Officer

  1. I unfortunately don’t think I can make this, but I would advise all ‘new professionals’ to attend. Last year’s summer seminar was incredibly useful as well as interesting, and a good way to engage with other archivists and records professionals at a similar stage in their careers. Definitely worth the trip!
