The Archive of Market and Social Research is maintained and operated by over 50 volunteers. We are a mix of old, not so old and even young, with a range of professional backgrounds and skills. What we have in common is an interest in and enthusiasm for building the archive into the important ‘go-to’ place for market research documents covering the past 70 or more years. The other thing we have in common is that we all find ‘working’ for the archive an interesting, satisfying and (gently) challenging experience.
Could you help?
We would welcome more volunteers with open arms. There’s a wide range of opportunities, from marketing and fundraising to scanning, indexing and uploading. Click the red button above to see the skills we’re currently most in need of. AMSR is fortunate to have a dedicated room made available to us at Ipsos MORI during office hours, but for the past 18 months much of our work has been done remotely. You can also find out more about the effect that Covid-19 is currently having upon our working arrangements.
The work varies in the degree of intellectual challenge, but whatever your contribution, the rewards come in enjoying the work with like-minded colleagues and the satisfaction of contributing to such a worthwhile project.
If you would like to join in this, please email us or use the contact page on this website to send us a message about the way in which you feel you might be able to help.
We are hugely grateful for the contributions of all those who currently volunteer with the Archive of Market and Social Research:
