Welcome to FARMER
The Forum for Archives and Records Management Education and Research for the UK and Ireland (FARMER) was formed in 1999 for teaching and research staff in the area of archives and records management in universities in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. The membership includes representatives of the five postgraduate programmes which have been formally recognized by the Society of Archivists as providing primary professional qualifications for entrants to the archives and records management profession (UCL, Liverpool, UCD, Aberystwyth and Northumbria) and those which are seeking such accreditation (Glasgow, Dundee).
The Forum aims to provide a focus for the discipline of archives and records management in an educational context. An essential part of this is the development and encouragement of teaching and research staff and member institutions.
