Following our survey in 2019 aiming at the silver generation and their personal experience with archives, we would now like to take a closer look at initiatives that archival institutions are offering to senior users: for example as voluntary workers or involving them in micro tasks like identifying and describing items in pictures or similar.
The main goal of all of this is to summarise and evaluate existing initiatives and to come up with ideas, recommendations etc. for European archival institutions on how to reach and actively cooperate with the target group of senior citizen – the Silver Generation, also considering making use of the knowledge and interest in (local) history, motivation and availability of this specific audience.
