Services to Local Authority Archives, Libraries and Museums

Not all organisations have staff with experience of dealing with business archives. In museums and libraries, in particular, the way that these archives are arranged, described and used is very different to their own professions’ methodologies and this may cause problems for their staff on a day-to-day basis.

The Business Archives Council of Scotland are specialists in business archives and can help organisations who lack staff with archive qualifications with these problems.

The Business Archives Council of Scotland works with local archives, museums and libraries to list their business collections, clear identified backlogs and make business archives accessible to users.

We also provide training and guidance on dealing with archives to heritage organisations and other interested parties.
