Archive Horror Stories
Release Date: Halloween
We’re getting spooky this Halloween and sharing some of the scariest things that we can think of! We have taken inspiration from some fantastic blogs written by Scottish archives and discovered some of the items that haunt Archivists and Conservators darkest dreams.
The devastation of dastardly data loss wreaks its terrible revenge (but there is friendly support available at the DPC Fail Club).
Casting our net, a little wider than Scotland, we read a terrible tale of anonymously donated items preventing their inclusion in collections and our understanding of the relevance and provenance of the item over on the Museum of Science and Industry blog.
We are sure you will scream at the sticky situation over on the National Library of Scotland blog.
