GMCDP is working in partnership with Archives+ to fully catalogue the Disabled People’s Archive collection. This collection is the largest disabled people’s archive in England, and is hosted by GMCDP and stored at the Central Library with Archives+. GMCDP has secured funding to ensure this important collection is catalogued and fully accessible to disabled people.
As the Access and Inclusion worker you will be responsible for ensuring archive materials are transcribed into accessible formats, including large print, BSL, audio, Braille and easy read. You will work with the Archive Lead to establish priorities for transcription, and will apply GMCDP’s good practice guidelines for making material accessible, improve or build on these and work with Archives+ to develop resources which can be used across other archive collections. You will support Archive collections to become more accessible through co-delivering training and workshops alongside the wider GMCDP archive staff team.
Full training will be provided for this role in accessible standards, archive systems and protocols.
