Bridging the Digital Gap with The National Archives and Gloucestershire Archives

2021 - 2022

Bridging the Digital Gap is a program run by The National Archives, in conjunction with host institutions in the UK, to bring more digital skillsets into the archive sector.

My name is Natasha Young and I am a Digital Archive Trainee based at the Gloucestershire Archives. I will be documenting my progress through the program (January 2021 – March 2022), showcasing what I have both learned in terms of traditional archival skills, alongside the digital and design experience I have brought to the program.
