Consultation focus group - Archivists and Records Managers

Tuesday, 25 August 2009

We would like to invite archivists and records managers in Scotland who work with or care for business archives to attend a focus group session.

The session will be held at the National Archives of Scotland on Thursday 24 September 2009 from 1030 until 1230.

This focus group is your chance to feed your ideas and thoughts into a National Strategy for Business Archives in Scotland. The focus group is an opportunity to:

  • find out the purpose of the proposed strategy in a UK context
  • help identify the issues that you feel affect your custodianship of business archives
  • identify links and partnerships that could be created to raise the profile of business archives
  • identify actions that could be undertaken to ensure business archives are captured, preserved and made accessible to as wide an audience as possible

If you would be interested in attending, please contact David Powell or Kiara King at
