London business archive guide

London Metropolitan Archives has placed a new collections guide online entitled Business: Unlock the riches of the archives of London commerce and trade with the world : A-Z business listing.

From the introduction:

This guide is a key finding aid to help researchers unlock the rich and substantial business archives of international importance held by London Metropolitan Archives. The purpose of the guide is to enable researchers to identify particular collections through a summarised list arranged alphabetically by organisation name. The entries are also indexed by trade and geographical remit (where interests were held outside the United Kingdom). Researchers can navigate to the online catalogue for detailed information on particular collections of interest.

The 367 page guide lists details of all the business records held by LMA, and can be consulted online and downloaded in PDF format from http://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/things-to-do/visiting-the-city/archives-and-city-history/london-metropolitan-archives/the-collections/Documents/business-a-to-z-listing.pdf

(With thanks to the latest LMA newsletter)
