Minutes:

In line with best practice a 5 yearly review had been carried out of both the Appraisal and Disposal Policy and the Collections Information Policy.

 

Revised draft policies were submitted:

 

Appraisal and Disposal Policy – Possessing an up to date policy contributed to the accreditation process. This key document serves to support Archivists in determining long term value/relevance of documents and provides a criteria for deciding whether offers should be accepted.

 

Collections Information Policy – Requires the holding of information on each item in the collection including proof of ownership, its location and movement control.

 

Resolved – That the updated Appraisal and Disposal Policy and Collections Information Policy be approved.
