Charlotte Simmons

Hi, I'm Charlotte and I will be taking over the Archivist role. This is my fourth year in SSAGO, and my first as an Indie, having finished at Nottingham last year. Whilst at Nottingham I was involved with the archive that SNoGS run in conjunction with the University of Nottingham archives and really enjoyed it, and I believe it's important that clubs are supported to set up and run their own archives if this is something that they wish to do, as well as maintaining and building the national SSAGO archive. I'm really looking forward to getting stuck in to this role and to working with members of SSAGO to build our records for future generations. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions relating to archives either at a national or club level.

Report

  • Handover: I am currently in the process of attending handover training sessions with Larah to learn about the role, having been appointed in January.
  • Guidance document: I have worked with Larah to produce a guidance document for clubs wanting to set their own archives up.
  • Meeting with Clubs: Larah and I met with Liverpool to discuss their plans for setting up and archive in preparation for their anniversary celebrations next year. I am, of course, happy to meet with other clubs to discuss archives as well.

Aims

  • Handover: Continue handover sessions with Larah to learn more about the role.
  • Projects: Spend the next few months thinking about projects that I would like to run as I take over the role properly.
  • Physical archives: Whenever I am allowed (post covid), I intend to visit the physical collection that we have at Gilwell Park, and to ensure that any items that need to be deposited are.
  • Working with clubs: I would like to continue to work with clubs to help them to develop their archives - so if you'd like me to meet with you, please do get in touch.
  • Digital archive: continue to develop the digital archive project.
