Business archive collections are rich sources of information that can enhance personal family research, the understanding of local history and form the basis of academic research projects.  

The National Register of Archives (NRA) and the National Register of Archives for Scotland (NRAS) are the best places to start a search for a particular collection or records of a specific industry.  The two sites complement each other but generally the NRAS will y have more detailed information about collections and often full catalogues online.

The National Archives have information about business history records held in the UK.

ArchivesHub has prepared an excellent starter guide to using archives for research.
