I hope this national recognition will inspire many more people to delve in to our collections.”
On behalf of the assessor bodies for Scotland, Dr Irene O’Brien, Chair of the Scottish Council on Archives, said: “Archive Service Accreditation is not a static award but rather a commitment to striving for service quality, not least in what is offered to the public.
“It is wonderful that Historic Environment Scotland is the latest service to join the growing list of Scottish archives to be recognised in this way.
It is a significant accolade and both the service and its increasing number of users have much to celebrate.”
