AS Archive Services

I'm Alison, an archivist based in Glasgow with over 25 years experience in the field.

I decided to go freelance as I felt there should be an easier way for organisations and individuals to get archival work done. And the additional offer of personal filing arose out of experience within my own family.

To give you a bit of background about myself, after a degree in history from the University of Strathclyde, I went on to train as an archivist at the University of Liverpool. During my career, I have worked in local government, national government, university and private sector archives in the UK and New Zealand. In recent years I have specialised in cataloguing projects, most recently at Glasgow City Archives (see Case Studies). I also work part time as an archivist for Edinburgh Napier University.

I am a member of the Archives and Records Association, the Scottish Council on Archives and the Community Archives and Heritage Group. For your peace of mind I have a current Disclosure Scotland check, I am fully insured and I can provide references.
