About: the SWiB Volunteers

In our work to provide public access to our image archives, we have 16 or so dedicated volunteers who are helping to catalogue, scan and preserve our collections.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life and have many interests. Some are interested in local history and belong to local photographic groups and history societies, we also offer opportunities for those with disabilities to develop skills and work-experience not available to them in normal employment. 

In accordance with our 'Learning For All' objectives, we offer work-placements to a number of college and university students who are eager to learn about the workings of a digital archive and the value of our collections as a historical resource. If you are interested in finding out more about our work placement programme or would like to enquire about becoming a volunteer, please do contact us.
