BAC is delighted to announce that the winner of the 2021 cataloguing grant for Business Archives is Friends of the Huntley Archives (FHALMA) Foundation at the London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) for cataloguing important additional archives of Bogle-L’Ouverture Publishing Eric & Jessica Huntley’s business records: The Ananse Society papers.
In this, a bumper year for the grant, BAC was pleased to have received several applications with a very high standard of entries. After much discussion, the judges came to a unanimous decision and felt that FHALMA’s cataloguing project would make a real difference, was achievable and realistic, and would lead to further projects and initiatives. The educational outreach programme was well planned and clearly thought out to achieve a number of outcomes.
BAC is proud to support this project, particularly at a time of increased pressure on cultural resources when the need to develop, promote and encourage greater use of such resources has never been more important. Full details can be found on the BAC website here.
