Welcome to the Logjam Methodology Review Survey

The Logjam Methodology was developed in 2003 as part of a project to calculate the size of the backlog of uncatalogued archives in North West England. The project undertook a survey of 30 repositories of all types and helped archive services to prioritise their backlogs. Since then several regions and individual services have used the same methodology to assess and prioritise their cataloguing backlogs. The National Archives has commissioned Janice Tullock Associates to assess the level of interest in revising the Logjam Methodology. They are interested in how the tool is used, whether it should be updated and whether there is a role for a wider Collections Management Data tool. This survey is exploring these issues.

We are interested in hearing from you whether you have used the tool before or not, or even if you haven't heard of it. Further details of the Logjam Methodology can be found in a short film at https://youtu.be/DJga6NI1edY 

This survey is managed by Janice Tullock Associates who will hold data submitted, for the purpose of developing the Logjam Methodology. As part of this process, we may collect personal data, such as name and email address, which will be used to contact you regarding further discussions on the project and will not be shared more widely. We will retain this information for 2 years, or until a decision has been made not to continue the development of the project, whichever is sooner.

Thank you for participating in our survey. The survey will be open until 28th November 2021. If you have any questions please contact janice@janicetullock.co.uk .  Your feedback is important and will help us to explore the next steps for this work.
