BAC Cataloguing Grants announced

Announcing two BAC Cataloguing Grants: for business archives and business archives related to the arts:

The Business Archives Council (BAC) has announced that it has increased its two cataloguing grants for business collections to £4000 each in 2018. The aim of these grants is to fund the cataloguing of a business collection 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 potential academic or socio-historical value;
  • Create opportunities for archivists or para-professionals/volunteers to gain experience in listing business collections;
  • Increase access to business collections.

Find out more about the criteria for the grants and how to apply on the BAC website. Previous applicants are welcome to re-apply. Please note that the BAC will not normally award a grant to the same institution within three years.

The main cataloguing grant opens on 03 April 2018 and the deadline for applications is 25 June 2018. Any questions about this grant should be addressed to Jenny Willis, Grant Administrator, at:
