CARING FOR YOUR THEATRE ARCHIVES
Caring for your Theatre Archives is a manual for people dealing with theatre archives, and is designed to be an easy-to-follow guide.
The manual covers all the basic steps of archives practice, including:
As well as giving practical instruction on how to deal with archives, the manual includes Appendices that give useful examples, and information on how to obtain supplies.
While the manual is published to give assistance to theatre archivists and others responsible for or holding theatre archives, it will be useful to all people who care for archives of small organisations, and who do not have ready access to training or to outside expertise.
