The BACS, in partnership with the Ballast Trust and with the support of the National Archives of Scotland and on behalf of the Scottish Council on Archives have developed a National Strategy for Business Archives in Scotland.
The strategy will work to ensure that business archives in Scotland continue to be valued, representative of economic activity and innovation, accessible to all and supported and developed by strong networks and partnerships.
The Scottish strategy complements the National Strategy for Business Archives (England and Wales). Both strategies share the same goals and the sponsors aim to work together wherever possible, acknowledging that business and industry recognise no borders. However, the Scottish strategy has developed a separate set of actions to reflect the different challenges of the Scottish context, issues of devolution and previous work undertaken by the BACS and Scottish records community.
