Professional cataloguing expectations can be daunting for non-archivists and volunteers working on community archive projects. The Community Archives and Heritage Group (CAGH) have developed an updated set of guidelines which aim to help groups looking to catalogue their own information. The material is presented in a simple and user-friendly manual which includes short and simple guidance.
The material is free to download from their website and is an invaluable resource for any community group looking to record their collections in a simple way that is consistent with widely-used professional standards.
