Business Archives workshop

Some photos from the Powering the World workshop 'The Bottom Line: The Value of Business Archives for Research' alongside some of the positive feedback from the day.

'I am much more aware of the potential uses and the range of topics included in business archives'

'The event actually generated an idea for research...'
'...identification of business archives as being a source that is not as dry as many think but is as vital as any other archive source'

'Really interesting sessions- highlighted the huge potential for research within business record collections'

'...discussions of different aspects of business archives- archivists and researchers' perspectives'

'I particulary enjoyed the meet and great sessions where we were able to discuss different interests as archivists and researchers'
