We are committed to making our collections more accessible to local people. In 2013-14 we prioritised displaying the Croydon Art Collection and relocating access to the local history and archive collections. In 2014-15, we delivered online access to the collections catalogue and, in 2016-17, we prioritised improving access to, and understanding of, the borough's archive collections leading to our application for Archives Service Accreditation, which was awarded in March 2017.
