Since 1986 there has been a desire to establish a fully functioning EPF archive, with a recognition of the importance of securing the EPF’s history both for operational and research purposes. However, progress since then has unfortunately been sporadic, lacking a clear structure to support these aims.
Initiated by the Executive and the General editor Jasminka Šuljagić, at the EPF Council meeting in November 2023, a general agreement was reached that the EPF archives should be formally established and supported by a management framework. The EPF archive committee have been designated.
The members of the Archive Committee are:
Jasminka Šuljagić, Chair
Christine Dierks, Member
Ewan O’Neill, Archivist, MSc (City Lond), RMARA
Frank Goderniaux, Administrative assistant to the EPF-FEP Executive
The EPF archive committee will set out and communicate a series of policies covering as a minimum, the following areas:
- Developing its collections
- Managing information about its collections
- Using and accessing its collections
- Caring for its collections
More information will follow soon.
