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
