Economic Impact Toolkit

The Scottish Council on Archives is a member of the Alliance of Libraries, Museums and Archives UK (ALMA-UK) and contributed to the commissioning and development of the ALMA-UK Economic Impact Toolkit for Museums and Archives.

The Toolkit was most recently revised in August 2016.

You can download the toolkit and additional guidance on this page. 

If your organisation looks after more than one archive, you might wish to aggregate the findings so that you can present a picture group of archives. This will enable you to see the impact you are having in the geographical area you represent. The economic impact aggregation toolkit was designed alongside the economic impact toolkit and is also an electronic resource. It comes complete with a guidance document explaining how to use it. Both the aggregation toolkit and the guidance document are free to download and use. Click here for more information.
