Case Study: Supporting Business in your Community

Thursday, 25 April 2013

I'm very pleased to be able to blog about our first bi-lingual case study from Tasglann nan Eilean Siar (Hebridean Archives) and the Harris Tweed Authority.

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.

The full case study is available in English and Gaelic and the others can be found here.
