Each business is unique in its history and experience. Professional management of records and archives is not just a matter for nostalgia but can contribute to the bottom line.
You can use these pages to discover how to use your archives and records to your advantage, see examples of good practice, and find out how to get more advice and help. You will also find information on depositing archives with a local archive, library or museum, or set ting up a charitable trust to own and manage a business's historical archives.
Only a tiny minority of businesses make any provision for their historic archives. There are better ways to use these assets than to let them gather dust.
There is further advice on best practice for business archives on the new Managing Business Archives website.
