Consultancies vary from advising on initial project outlines to detailed assessments of collections.
For ESB Archives Scroope Design was commissioned to produce a value study of the collections.
The study addressed the value in terms of cultural representation, corporate representation and commercial, historical and legal content nature of the collection and rarity of items.
It also addressed the organisation and management, accessibility, who accesses the collections how often and for what purpose.
The study included a comparative analysis of other similar Archives in UK and Ireland.
