Launch of English and Welsh strategy

Thursday, 9 July 2009

The National Strategy for Business Archives in England and Wales is being launched today. The strategy is available here and the launch now means that the Managing Business Archives website is also live.

The website is an excellent resource for businesses and provides examples of best practice to help owners of business archive collections manage their archives. "It's aimed at company personnel with no prior knowledge or expertise in archive management as well as business archive practitioners." However, the advice is equally useful for any custodians of business archive collections.

We look forward to seeing how the English and Welsh strategy is taken forward and identifying opportunities for joint action and partnership working.
