Access to 13 archive collections is set to be transformed by a series of grants announced today. The National Cataloguing Grants Programme 2012Â has awarded Â£407,950 to archives across the UK to help make these vitally important collections fully accessible for the first time.
Managed by The National Archives, the grants programme helps archives to catalogue previously inaccessible collections. Cataloguing past collections has uncovered treasures, which have provided unique insight into our nation’s history.
The programme is funded by a collective of charitable trusts and foundations including the Pilgrim Trust, the Foyle Foundation and the Wolfson Foundation – we are very grateful for their renewed support.
