Meet the Archivists: a review

Monday, 19 November 2012

our goodie bag
We're very pleased with how our first Scottish ‘Meet the Archivists’ event went on the 9th November. This was a free event organised by the Business Archives Council of Scotland, the Scottish Council on Archives and the Centre of Business History to encourage students and academic researchers to make the most of business archive collections.  

Thank you to everyone who attended and contributed information to the day. There's going to be a proper write up of the day in the SCA's Broadsheet next month. A particular thanks to those who attended and have been kind enough to fill out our mini survey and say lots of nice things about the day which seems to have been very successful with everyone rating it either ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’.

Comments included:
“was a really useful and inspiring day”
“Great atmosphere; great line up of interesting and knowledgeable speakers; sessions were at the right pace and information given at the right level; great to have the opportunity to discuss my research with archivists and to get some pointers; loved the goodie bag - and lunch.”
"A really worthwhile training event. Thanks to all involved."
