When It’s Gone, It’s Gone – Keeping Knowledge Safe
ABTEM’s next seminar will be a joint ABTEM and SHCG event held at the National Railway Museum, York on 11th October 2019
What happens to their knowledge when long-serving staff and volunteers leave? How do institutions plan for succession? How do we cope with fewer people with specialist knowledge?
This day seminar aims to address these issues and give an opportunity for sharing strategies and projects. Confirmed speakers include Steph Mastoris on SHCG’s firstBase project and Dr Laura Humphreys on harvesting information from curators at the Science Museum.
The seminar will cost £12 (excluding lunch) and there will be opportunity to look around the NRM.
