Developing our Collections

We’re always looking for ways to develop our collections and keep them relevant to our visitors.  Archives have for some years worked routinely within the framework of an established collecting policy, often co-ordinated with other services to avoid potential conflicts and overlaps. A collections development policy does not replace such a collecting policy, which remains a critical collections management tool. Most collecting policies are permissive, not active. They define a collecting remit, rather than identifying priorities and strategies for fulfilling that remit.
