BASQ Call for Submissions - Business Archives on Display

We can all say by now that business archivists wear many hats. When we’re not working on traditional archival tasks, we’re serving as a researcher, historian, copywriter, IT professional… and often, an exhibits specialist. Developing exhibitions with our collections is a fantastic way to connect to employees and the public. And these displays come in many, many forms.

Have you put your company’s collections on display somewhere? Examples could include exhibits at:

  • A corporate headquarters or other facility
  • A museum, historical society, or other cultural institution
  • A trade show, vendor expo, etc.
  • Somewhere outside, like a fair or company party/event (GASP!)

These are just thought starters – we want to hear about all the unique experiences you’ve had bringing your collections out of the stacks and into the light (with proper UV protection when needed, of course).

Please reach out to if you’re interested in submitting. As always, the BAS Editorial Team is more than happy to work with you as you develop your idea.

The deadline for these articles is March 13, 2020. Thank you, and we hope to hear from you!
