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, firstname.lastname@example.org
