Promoting Opening Up Scotland's Archives

One of 2015's main objectives was to demonstrate how the archive sector is tackling skills gaps and contributing directly to Scottish Government National Outcomes of more and better employment opportunities, and ensuring people are better educated, more skilled and more successful.

Promoting the Opening Up Scotland's Archives Skills for the Future project, directly involving our trainees and celebrating the contributions they are making within their host archive services led us to create high-quality postcards - one for each trainee. These formed a key part of the information packs distributed to all MSPs and you can view them below.

SCA also hosted an evening fringe event. The trainees staffed their own display stands and MSPs were invited to drop-in for a chat. Check out the gallery below.
