Business Archives Council Cataloguing Grant 2022

11 April 2022

Announcing the 2022 Business Archives Council cataloguing grant.

The Business Archives Council has today announced this year’s cataloguing grant for business archives.  This year a single award of £5,000 is available.   

The aim of this grant is to fund the cataloguing of a business archive collection(s) in either the private or public sector, and to:

  • – provide financial support for institutions/businesses that manage business archives  
  • – reach collections that have not yet been prioritised but have academic, socio-historical and wider value 
  • – create opportunities for archivists, paraprofessionals and volunteers to gain experience in cataloguing business collections 
  • – make more business collections accessible 

Criteria for the grant and how to apply can be seen on the BAC website here.  Previous applicants are welcome to re-apply.  Please note that the BAC will not award a grant to the same institution within three years.  The decision on the award of the grant will be made by a Cataloguing Grant Panel established by BAC which consists of two executive committee members and one non-executive member.  Panel members will not judge applications where they have a research or employment affiliation. 

The deadline for applications is Friday 24 June.  

Any questions should be addressed to Natalie Attwood, Grant Administrator,
