ADVISORY SERVICES

Access to advisory services is one of the advantages to membership in the Council of Archives New Brunswick. Through an Archives Advisor and a Preservation Advisor the council is able to support and encourage the growth and maintenance of our province’s archival heritage. 

Reporting to the CANB Executive, the Archives Advisor:

  • Initiates and fosters relationships with member and potential member institutions

  • Conducts onsite training to staff and volunteers of archives across the province

  • Develops, organizes, and administers educational workshops and seminars

  • Assists member institutions in the application and reporting components of external funding programs

  • Provides professional and technical advice to member institutions in accordance with current archival standards, policies and procedures.

  • Works with the Executive in support of the full range of Council activities including funding adjudication, membership, and meetings

  • Coordinates with the Preservation Advisory Service to identify member needs and priorities

  • Facilitates the upload of fonds descriptions from the provincial database into Archives Canada

  • Promotes, encourages or otherwise enables archives-specific community activities/events

  • Communicates with members and other heritage and cultural groups through several means including updating the Council’s website

In conjunction with the Archives Advisor, CANB members also have access to a Preservation Advisor. 

Overall the goal of the CANB Preservation Services is to increase the capacity of CANB institutions to preserve their archival holdings. Services provided include: 
 

  • Educational opportunities: outreach, training, presentations, workshops.
