Description

Corporate Connections is an initiative launched by BACS in 2017 to encourage face to face conversations, bringing together the small community of business archivists and custodians of business archives in Scotland, many of whom work alone to share our experiences. Regular social meet ups will be held with a rotating theme to kick start conversations and let you meet your peers. Anything and everything business archives will be openly discussed among friends.

The theme of our next event is Oral History in Business Archives. Discussion will be led by Arthur McIvor of the University of Strathclyde Oral History Centre, who will provide an insight into carrying out oral history projects in a business archive context.
