Despite being a profession which often relies upon volunteers to process the backlog of materials due to a lack of funding, the Australian archival community does not know much about our volunteers. Currently Christopher Stueven and myself are heading a couple of initiatives in order to address this blindspot within our profession. I will be conducting research into the motivations of our volunteers, whilst Chris will be formulating a best practice document for volunteering programs in archival organisations. Please read more about what is happening within this space in this recent blogpost and feel free to register your interest or provide us with any feedback!
