This scheme has recently evolved to include new disciplines and subject areas, according to professional needs, such as Records Management and the use and applications of Information and Communication Technology, alongside the more ‘traditional’ areas of archive management and cataloguing, and the necessary techniques and standards which also evolve and develop. Specialised manuscript and interpretative skills are also developed, against a background of historical, administrative and contextual understanding in relation to records and documents. This course combines high academic standards with a scientific approach to the management of archives, with emphasis on putting theory into practice. The proximity of the National Library of Wales and the Ceredigion Record Office ensure an abundance of original documentary sources and collections for study, together with a substantial body of professional expertise: staff from both make a direct contribution to teaching, as do academic colleagues from other departments of the University.
