Last Thursday night some individuals with an interest in Museums, Archives and Libraries gathered to discuss an article called Artefacts and archives: Considering cross-collection knowledge networks in museums. It was a merry band with beer in hand that, as the article suggested, explored how collections in various cultural institutions have become decontextualised. Through no fault of our own GLAM (Gallery, Library, Archive, Museums) professionals can’t always tell the full story of the artefacts in their care, this is because the way we separate artefacts from letters, journals or photos (museums from archives) means we don’t readily have the information available to make those connections in our collections.

How can I stand out from the crowd when I apply for my next job and if I am not successful how can my next application be better? These are two questions I wanted students and new graduates to get answers for after attending our KSC workshop. Long story short. I got my answers, and so much more.
