Falkirk Archives maintains accredited status

As the first archive in Scotland to be granted accredited status in 2014, Falkirk Archives is delighted to have retained its accredited status following a review carried out in June by members of the National Records of Scotland and the Scottish Council on Archives.

Accredited Archives are known and acknowledged for providing the defined good standards and practices recognised throughout the archive community. We are proud that our commitment to continuing high standards has been recognised and that Falkirk Archives, based at Callendar House, has retained accredited status.

Building on the excellent established level of service provided while rising to the omnipresent challenges of nationwide financial pressures, the Archive seeks to expand collections valuable to the Falkirk area and wider country as well as make current collections more accessible digitally.

Falkirk Archives is the place to come to find out about the history of Falkirk district or to start your family history research. Local archives and photographs are held here, and can be viewed by the public. Most aspects of local life are covered, from valuation and electoral rolls to old newspapers, from school records to town council minutes, from foundry catalogues to church bazaar programmes, and all sorts of things in between.

Lesley O’Hare, Culture and Libraries Manager said, “Thanks go to the Archives’ dedicated staff – including our new Archivist, Paul Choi, who had only been in post two months at the time of the accreditation review for their hard work in meeting the exacting standards of Archives Accreditation”.

This status gives us more encouragement and opportunity for Falkirk Community Trust to build upon and continue to improve the Archive service and help contribute to the development of Archive services nationwide.
