Welcome

Thank you for taking part.
 
This survey is aimed at UK- and Irish-based film archives and other organisations that hold, care for and provide public access to moving image archive collections.   The survey is part of a strategic review of Film Archives UK (FAUK) conducted by Elizabeth Oxborrow-Cowan Associates and supported by funding from The National Archives.
 
The survey will help FAUK develop plans for how it supports members, organisations and individuals who work with historic moving image collections. It covers operational aspects of film archives and film collecting organisations.  
 
This is one of three surveys being undertaken for the project. The other two cover those working in film archives (paid and volunteer) and individuals who are Associate Members of FAUK.
 
Guidance
 
The survey has 62 questions and will take approximately 50 minutes to complete and closes on Friday 30 April at 5pm.  You can exit the survey whenever you wish and return to complete it at a later date. Responses will be saved at the point where the 'Next' button is clicked but you must return to the survey on the same device. Please provide only one completed survey per film archive service. No question is mandatory but the more information that is provided the more comprehensive will be FAUK's understanding of the sector as a result.
 
The data will be collected anonymously (IP addresses will not be collected) by Elizabeth Oxborrow- Cowan Associates and analysis and results will not be attributable to individual repositories. FAUK will receive an anonymised analysis report but will not have access to individual responses. All data will be handled in compliance with UK GDPR and only used for the purpose for which it is being collected. A summary of the survey results will be made publicly available.
