Cataloguing grants awarded

Access to ten archive collections is set to be transformed by a series of grants announced yesterday. The National Cataloguing Grants Programme 2014 has awarded £342,149 to archives across the UK to help make these 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, the Wolfson Foundation and the Andrew W Mellon Foundation.

James Travers, Secretary to the Cataloguing Grants Panel, said: 'The funded projects for this year embrace a range of subjects including public service, science, drama and the arts with a variety of types of material such as a major photographic collection and regional film archive.'

Each individual grant can last for up to two years, enabling the archives to explore each collection fully.
