Scotland's Archives Matter

The Scottish Council on Archives has recently released a new publication entitled 'Scotland's Archives Matter'.

It seeks to 'showcase the work of Scotland's archives and illustrate their vital importance not only as priceless cultural treasures, but also as a critical part of modern Scottish society.'

Sentiments with which I wholeheartedly agree!  And if you look carefully, you'll find a few words in there from me, written when I was still an archivist at the National Archives of Scotland [as it was then!] talking about my use of archival material when I was student [that's a wee while ago now!]

Worth a read - it's very nicely done.
