Capturing the records of failed businesses

Saturday, 22 January 2011

The Scotsman reported last Thursday that record numbers of Scottish businesses are failing.  News like this makes the strategy even more relevant as its important for us to build strong relationships with the liquidators and insolvency companies to ensure that the important records of failed business are not lost as well.

One of the actions for the implementation group this year is to contact insolvency practitioners and inform them of the strategy and create a network of contacts so that archivists can work with them to capture important business archive collections.
