Archives and Records Association (ARA)

The leading professional body for the record-keeping sector. They welcome all with an interest in archives, records management, and conserving records to join us and drive the sector forward.

Browse the ARA website to find out what they do, their members and the advice and guidance they provide to archive, libraries and other cultural venues.

In June 2024 after a lengthy review and update, the ARA released its new Security Guidance document for all cultural venues and sector organisations to use. The document offers details of risk management strategies, emergency planning, and an introduction to security elements and considerations.

The ARA has a catalogue of useful and downloadable materials available on their website including best practice advice, training, and directories all for free.
