Lambeth Palace Library will be represented at this year’s Religious Archives Group (RAG) conference by the Librarian and Archivist, Giles Mandelbrote, and the Library’s Senior Archivist,  Dr Rachel Cosgrave. Declan Kelly, the Director of Libraries, Archives & IT for the National Church Institutions, will also be attending. The conference will take place on Friday 26 April 2013 at the London Metropolitan Archives and is entitled Localism in Religious Archives. The programme includes speakers on archives across a range of religious denominations in London and elsewhere.

RAG, which is chaired by Dr Cosgrave, is a voluntary association for those interested in the collection, preservation and use of religious archives, and personal papers of religious leaders. It also hosts an email discussion list and current projects include involvement in a support plan for religious archives, in alliance with The National Archives, Archives and Records Association and other partners.
