accredited archive service logoEnfield's newly accredited Museum and Archive Service this month launches a programme of events in which visitors are invited in to learn about some of the objects in its collection.

The Service's accreditation status was announced at the end of March by the UK Archive Service Accreditation Partnership.  The panel awarding accreditation looks at "an organisation’s ability to develop, care for, and provide access to its collections, and those areas such as resources and planning which underpin those activities".  It is regarded as a "badge of external recognition which demonstrates quality services".

Perhaps by coincidence, or then again perhaps not, the Service has recently announced a programme of events between now and September in which Archivist John Clark will invite visitors into the archive for guided tours.  There will also be lunchtime Taster Lectures given by local historian Joe Studman and Egyptologist Stacey Anne Bagdi.  Subjects range from an ancient mammoth bone to an Edmonton Town Hall Distinguished Visitors Book with a special Tottenham connection (clue: think May 1962).
