Caring for Gloucestershire Archives' collections

All records, whether paper, parchment, photographic or electronic are vulnerable if not looked after

  • The archives are kept in secure storage areas, under climatically controlled conditions in line with national standards
  • We have accredited conservators who carry out remedial treatments and minimal repairs to slow deterioration and stabilise damaged material
  • We are working to ensure electronic information, particularly digital information will remain accessible for as long as is needed
