BAC Cataloguing Grant for Business Archives
The Business Archives Council is delighted to announce its annual Cataloguing Grant for Business Archives. The grant remains at £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 2020 and the deadline for applications is 5pm on 25 June 2020.
Given the current situation with there being no, or limited, access to collections, we are happy to discuss the possibility of an extended deadline. If you feel you need more time to carry out physical checks of your collection, please get in touch before the current deadline. We will consider each request on a case by case basis.
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 Jo Blyghton, Administrator, Business Archives Council Cataloguing Grant 2020, at firstname.lastname@example.org
