    Accredited Archive

    • 24th March 2017

    We are pleased to announce that, following a recent assessment, Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service has retained its Accredited Archive status!

    Archive Accreditation, which recognises good practice in all areas of archive service delivery, was introduced in 2013.  We were pioneers of the scheme, taking part in the pilot and then becoming one of the first 3 local authority archive services to become accredited (link to previous blog post at http://waas.dev.aaadev.net/search?q=accreditation).   After three years we had to go through a review, and the results were confirmed this week.

    In its feedback, the Accreditation Panel noted that ‘the service’s achievement in continuing to deliver well and to address key issues…material is particularly impressive’, particularly in light of reductions in budget, staffing and opening hours.

    We are thrilled with the result, which is a testament to the hard work of the team and their commitment to providing an excellent archive service.
