BAC Cataloguing Grant for Business Archives
This year the Business Archives Council (BAC) will once again offer a £3000 cataloguing grant for business collections. 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 01 April 2017 and the deadline for applications is 26 June 2017.
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 2017, at Jenny.Willis@postalmuseum.org
