Got a few hours to spare? Enjoy working with documents?

Archive Volunteers

The Keep is currently undertaking a digitisation project which will enable its archive material to be better preserved, more accessible, and support the displays within the museum’s galleries. We are currently focusing on our First World War collection.

The main tasks are:

·         Checking that items in our archive boxes match what is recorded on our database

·         Editing data and cataloguing items on our database

·         Scanning material and storing it within our files

·         Preservation tasks, such as repackaging documents in conservation materials

We would like you to be able to offer at least 2 hours of your time a week (During Mon-Fri working hours), and all volunteers will receive full training and supervision from the museum Archivist. Sound like something you might like to help us with? Get in touch with Lisa Wills on 01305 264066, or email archive@keepmilitarymuseum.org for more information about how to apply and the role description.
