Cornish Archives Network

Established in 2006, the Cornish Archives Network (CAN) aims to provide a regular opportunity for anyone involved in the collection, preservation and management of archives to:

  • discuss common issues of concern
  • hear about opportunities for funding and training
  • share ideas and examples of good practice
  • meet other people working with archives
  • benefit from peer and professional advice
  • form partnerships (for example, for cheaper bulk buying of materials or project working)
  • increase knowledge about local holdings and collections.
