Our Network continues the advocacy and outreach work begun by the five-year National Strategy for Business Archives in Scotland 2011-16. It will provide case studies, training, toolkits, communication channels and other resources to support its key aims and objectives.
The network was formally launched at the Museum on the Mound on 11 February 2016. Read about the launch here. To join the network please sign up to our newsletter.
Further details about membership and networking events and opportunities will be available shortly.
We'll be providing and raising awareness of a variety of training events and online resources to help you, whether you are creating, caring for or using business archives.
HISTORY AS A BUSINESS ASSET
The history of each business is unique. We'll be gathering and sharing case studies to demonstrate how business archive collections can become important business assets.
Similar case studies published by the National Strategy for Business Archives in Scotland are available on the Scottish Council on Archiveswebsite.
The network has been proactively supported by individuals, initially from the founder members and we appeal to those with an interest in business history and business archives to join the network and articulate what they’d like it to offer.
