1. Introduction

With COVID-19 restrictions with us for the foreseeable future, we would like to understand how the pandemic has affected Scottish archive services’ ability and plans to undertake outreach work with their local communities and schools. This will enable us to adapt our outreach support programme to address the issues that archivists are facing with this work. 
Our consultation is in two parts. This short survey asks you to tell us how the pandemic has affected your work and how we can help you with training and support. As a follow-up, we will ask if you are willing to have a short phone conversation with us to find out more about the issues that you dealing with. We would be grateful if you would take the time to complete this brief survey to allow us to better understand your needs.
