Hunter Gatherers: Collecting Today's Business Archives
This year's Business Archives Council conference will be held on Tuesday 10th November at The Prudential Assurance Company Building, 138-142 Holborn Bars, London EC1N 2NQ.
The aim will be to share, discuss and debate the variety of ways business archives are 'collected', in the broadest sense. Speakers and contributors will cover a wide range of collecting and collections development activities, from records transfers to documentation initiatives and surveys, and from digital deposits to purchases. Also up for debate will be the implications and challenges of different collecting activities - including funding - for archives, depositors, historians and other users.
The conference will be followed by a reception for the presentation of the BAC Wadsworth Prize for Business History, taking place nearby at Lloyds Banking Group, 25 Gresham Street, London EC2V 7HN from 6 pm onwards. All conference delegates are most welcome to attend.
More information about the programme and how to book your place will be made available soon.
