The Scottish Council on Archives provides leadership and builds capacity for the archives and records management sector in Scotland. We work in partnership with many organisations throughout the UK to support and promote the management and use of archives services and collections. We run a busy programme of workshops and events and deliver projects and resources spanning engagement, education and advocacy.
