Publicising the national strategy

Tuesday, 24 August 2010

Plans are ongoing for the official launch of the national strategy for business archives in Scotland but in the meantime we are publicising it where we can.  One such event is the the European Business History Association's conference this week at the University of Glasgow's Centre for Business History.

We hope that business historians will be interested in the strategy and particularly the actions aimed at increasing the use of business archives for academic research purposes.

To help with the publicity, I've created a small leaflet that I thought I would share here as well for downloading and printing (although it is a full colour leaflet so make sure you set it to print black and white).

Wednesday, 11 August 2010

The National Strategy for Business Archives in Scotland can now be view and downloaded here.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped David and I to produce this document.  A launch for the strategy is being planned and details will be posted here once they are finalised but we hope the launch will take place in the Autumn.

Any comments about the strategy can be sent to me at kiara.king@glasgow.ac.uk or bacs@archives.gla.ac.uk.
