Our past, your future - a guide to local government archives (UK)
"The Local Government Association and leading archive ambassadors, including The National Archives, the National Council on Archives and the Society of Archivists, this week launched a new publication, Our past, your future - a guide to local government archives. The guide highlights how archives can enrich people's lives and support local communities and is aimed at local councillors and senior officers in local authorities in England. It seeks to raise awareness of the breadth of work and activity undertaken by local government archive services - in education and lifelong learning, social services and stronger communities; and in promoting better record keeping and management in local councils."
