Developing a Scottish Strategy

Friday, 17 July 2009

A Scottish version of a National Strategy for Business Archives is essential to help improve and formalise existing practices for the care and management of business archives in Scotland.

The development of the strategy in Scotland is being taken forward jointly by the BACS and the Ballast Trust with the support of the National Archives of Scotland and the Scottish Council on Archives.

It is important that the strategy reflects the requirements and opinions of archivists, businesses and users. For these reasons a series of workshops are planned to gather information about how business archives are used, what problems exist, and potential changes that would help preserve and provide access to more business archives. Details of these workshops will be issued once they are confirmed and organised.
