Canongate Books' Living Archive

Scottish publisher Canongate Books, established in 1973, has created a new 'Living Archive' in conjunction with the University of Dundee, which will hold the firm's business papers, accounts, book drafts, proposals, artwork and more.

The Business Acrhives Scotland blog has the full story at http://businessarchivesscotland.blogspot.com/2010/06/living-archive-dundee-university.html.

If you are a firm that does not quite appreciate why retaining your records may be of use to future generations, please contact Business Archives Council for Scotland at bacs@archives.gla.ac.uk or Kiara King of the Ballast Trust at Kiara.King@glasgow.ac.uk, where you can gain advice on the value of certain records types, preservation and more.

NB: Congratulations to David Powell, formerly of BACS, who has moved to Stornoway to take up the post of Project Manager for the new Archives Service of the Western Isles.
