Meet the Archivists

Monday, 29 October 2012

In 10 days time, on Friday 9th November the first Scottish 'Meet the Archivists' event will take place at the University of Glasgow.

This FREE workshop aims to encourage students and academic researchers to make the most of Business Archives by bringing together academics and archivists to discuss and explore with students how business archive collections can be used for their research.  You can find out more and register for the event via eventbrite.
This event has been organised by the Business Archives Council of Scotland, the Scottish Council on Archives and the Centre of Business History.  It follows the pattern of successful events organised by the Business Archives Council in London for the last four years and an event held at Swansea University this year.
There will be representatives from the following archives available to discuss their collections as well as information about many other business archive collections in Scotland and the UK:
  • University of Aberdeen
  • Diageo Archive
  • Edinburgh City Archives
  • Glasgow City Archives
  • University of Glasgow Archives Services
  • Lloyds Banking Group Archives (Edinburgh)
  • Marks and Spencer Company Archive
  • National Records of Scotland/National Register of Archives for Scotland
  • Royal Bank of Scotland Group Archives
  • Tasglann nan Eilean Siar (Hebridean Archives)
