A panel discussion at the British Academy of Arts and Sciences held on April 9th 2014. This event explored the challenges posed by record keeping in both its historical and contemporary contexts. It raised questions about the relationship between archival practice and historical knowledge from the perspective of record custodians and record users. Bringing together professional historians, practising archivists and members of the public, it also sought to encourage lively debate about future decision-making and the creation of policies in this critical area. Chair: Dr Adam Smyth Adam Smyth is a Tutorial Fellow in English at Balliol College, Oxford, and a University Lecturer in the History of the Book (1450-1660).

http://www.exploreyourarchive.org/ Archives are amazing because without them we wouldn't know if this summer is the 'hottest on record', we wouldn't have such historically rich novels and films, we wouldn't know about the lives of our significant artists, and we wouldn't be able to revisit controversial and compelling legal cases from years gone by. Explore Your Archive. There is so much to discover.

The Society has been awarded a major new grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to preserve, restore and digitise its film collection. The collection is unique to the Society and includes a mix of amateur and professional film, often created by the Society’s Fellows or those involved in projects supported by the Society. Digitising the Society’s film collection will ensure its protection and security for the future, including the transfer of film stock which is of a deteriorating quality, creating a legacy for future generations of users in the United Kingdom and the wider world. Here, Alasdair MacLeod and Jan Faull tell us more. www.rgs.org/bfi
