BAC Cataloguing Grants announced

 

The Business Archives Council (BAC) has announced its two cataloguing grants for business 2019. The Cataloguing Grant for Business Archives continues, and a new grant for Business Archives related to Sports replaces the previous Arts grant. The grants are for £4000 each. 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 award a grant to the same institution within three years.

The main cataloguing grant for Business Archives opens on 03 April 2019 and the deadline for applications is 25 June 2019. Any questions about this grant should be addressed to Jo Blyghton, Grant Administrator, at: joblyghton@gmail.com
