Edinburgh City Archives Consultation

(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council)

We’re in the process of a consultation to determine how the people and groups of Edinburgh may want to engage with Edinburgh City Archives, and what should be added to our collections in the future. We appreciate that it’s a busy time of year, but we’re reaching out to encourage more responses from across the city to ensure that the diversity of the city is reflected within our future collections. We want our collections to fairly reflect the city.

If you would like to take part in this consultation, please follow this link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/VLWPC5R

The consultation will remain open until the end of December 2018. If you would like to participate but cannot respond by the end of December, please contact Edinburgh City Archives via the contact details below.
