The data mapping project aimed to create a single consistent and clarified dataset for business archive collections in Scotland that provides improved and flexible information for creators, custodians and users of business archives.
The project report and methodology is available here.
The Tasglann has been working with business and industry in the Outer Hebrides to advise and assist them in managing their records. Their aim is to help businesses to make better use of a key asset: their records, be it for administrative purposes, marketing, or legal defence.
The case study discusses how the Tasglann worked with the Harris Tweed Authority to undertake a full survey of their archive records, uncovering and listing numerous case files relating to trademark defence. Following the survey, these files are now accessible and easy to locate allowing the Authority to utilise them more easily in supporting their ongoing work and marketing.
