Preservation Committee

The overarching purpose of the Scottish Council on Archives Preservation Committee is to take a strategic approach that identifies priority areas for action relating to the preservation and conservation of Scotland’s archive collections and associated access issues.

The group works to identify practical, actionable and cost-effective means of improving and promoting communication and partnership working with relevant bodies that share an interest in the preservation and conservation of archive collections in Scotland. The Preservation Committee agreed on the need for a three-year plan outlining key strategic objectives along with an associated action plan.
