BAC Cataloguing Grant for Business Archives
This year the Business Archives Council is pleased to announce that it has increased its annual cataloguing grant for business collections to £4000. The aim of the grant is to fund the cataloguing of a business collection in either the private or public sector, and to:
- provide financial support for institutions/businesses that manage business archives
- reach collections that have not yet been prioritised but have potential academic or socio-historical value
- create opportunities for archivists or para-professionals/volunteers to gain experience in listing business collections
- increase access to business collections
The grant opens on 03 April 2018 and the deadline for applications is 25 June 2018.
Previous applicants are welcome to re-apply. Please note that the BAC will not award a grant to the same institution within three years.
Any questions about the grant should be addressed to Jenny Willis, Administrator, Business Archives Council Cataloguing Grant 2018, at Jenny.Willis@postalmuseum.org
