Archives Matter

Wednesday, 14 September 2011

The Scottish Council on Archives recently launched their Archives Matter brochure.

According to their website this publication seeks to achieve these objectives:

  • to serve as an introduction to the world of archives 
  • to act as a source of information that will encourage exploration and enquiry 
  • to be a persuasive advocacy document highlighting the importance of the archives and records management sector. The publication is both informative and visually attractive, filled with thought- provoking commentary and stunning images.
The brochure includes examples of business archives and why they matter.  It discusses company heritage with Lloyds Banking Group, technical records with the Ballast Trust and using archives for marketing with Diageo.

Its a great brochure, full of lovely pictures, quotes and examples and is full of inspiration about how to use archives and make them work for you.
