Cataloguing grant for Business Archives

Monday, 26 April 2010

Good news for business archive collections in the UK.  In support of the English and Welsh National Strategy for Business Archives, the Business Archives Council (BAC) has announced a new £2000 cataloguing grant for business collections.

The aim of the grant, in funding the cataloguing of a business collection in either the private or public sector, is to:

  • provide financial support for institutions/businesses that manage business archives
  • reach collections that have not yet been prioritised but have potential academic or socio-historical value
  • create opportunities for archivists or para-professionals/volunteers to gain experience in listing business collections
  • make more business collections accessible 
More information can be found on the Managing Business Archives website and application forms can be downloaded from the Business Archives Council website.
