Today is the launch of the National Strategy for Business Archives in Scotland!
As readers of this blog will know the Strategy has been developed by the Business Archives Council of Scotland and the Ballast Trust, with the support of the National Archives of Scotland and the Scottish Council on Archives.
It aims to make business archives in Scotland valued, representative of economic activity and innovation and accessible to all in order to ensure the survival of the nation’s important business records and industrial heritage.
Historical records are a unique and powerful business asset and the implementation of the Strategy will help businesses to promote, manage and exploit their archives and records effectively. We have eight case studies which provide great examples of business use of archive collections.
