New blog

Sunday, 24 July 2011

I spotted a new blog today called Taking Account of our Past and it will document the process of cataloguing accountancy papers.

From the blog:

The Taking Account of our Past project is based at Wolverhampton Archives and Local Studies and its purpose is to catalogue the collection of Smith, Son and Wilkie, a chartered accountancy firm who were based in the city. This project has been funded by a grant from the National Cataloguing Grants Programme for Archives, which is administrated by The National Archives. The grant of £36,000 has enabled the service to appoint Kimberley Benoy as a cataloguing archivist to work exclusively on this 18 month project.

Thanks for the mention! It is good to find a blog specifically focused on business archives. Your case studies look really interesting and may provide some inspiration later in my project. Kimberley (Taking Account of Our Past Project Archivist)
