Business Archives Sans Frontieres
This years Business Archives Council conference was entitled Business Archives Sans Frontieres, held on Thursday 10th November at Unilever House, Blackfriars, London. The aim of the conference was to consider the management of international business archives, both the benefits and difficulties of managing records across the world by the business, but also the issues raised by an external organisation, such as a local record office, university or commercial company, managing such archives, often on a businesss behalf. And which is the better option?
