Collection Management involves the development, storage, preservation and documentation of your heritage. We assess your most valuable archival assets, identify your immediate needs and challenges, and package the type of archive that will work best for you. We identify the best way to intellectually and physically arrange your available assets, catalogue and develop finding aids to ensure quick retrieval.
To capture the experiential or undocumented history, we interview key individuals in your organisation to create lasting repositories of insights and memories. These interviews are conducted in the life-story format which eventually connects one person’s journey to the larger historical narrative.
Atmakatha (also available as a stand-alone service) is an exclusive process used while creating private archives for highly accomplished individuals and their families. An introspective memoir in Q&A style, it aims to bridge the gap between a desire to pass on a legacy and writing a full-fledged memoir. An Atmakatha captures touchstone events and turning points from the subject’s life through an oral narration of their most personal stories in a compelling, relatable, and readable manner. In its final avatar, the interview, or the published Atmakatha becomes a highly visual family keepsake to be passed along.
We love libraries and enjoy the process of identifying primary material relevant to your history in libraries and repositories housing rare gems. Whether it is old advertisements of your company, media coverage on your grandfather or the history of your ancestral home/village, our team of researchers will dig it out for you. And since we spend so much time in libraries, we also assist professional writers with any kind of research assistance that they may require.
Our team will also develop historical content for interactive and social media, publications, exhibits, museums, events, documentaries and anniversary programming. The end deliverable of the archiving process is a fully cataloged and preserved collection that can support media inquiries, document a legacy, inform a book project and much more.
