ISB BID SUCCESS
  
A2A is delighted to announce the success of its 697,000 
bid to 	the Invest to Save Budget.  The result,  announced 
by Mo Mowlam in a press conference held at  the Cabinet 
Office on Thursday 17 February,  will enable the creation 
of the  infrastructure for the English national archive 
network  at the Public Record Office between April 2000 and 
March 2002.    The award of the total amount sought will 
allow the  central body to  undertake the overall control 
and enforcement of standards; provide expertise in 
information technology; manage offshore keying contracts 
and mount the resulting archival data on the World Wide  
Web.  The success of the bid will mean the retrospective 
conversion of about 400,000 pages of existing hard-copy 
catalogues of records of national, regional and local 
importance, and dating from  between the twelfth and  
twentieth centuries, which are held in local archive 
offices in England. Regional consortia bids to the Heritage 
Lottery Fund (HLF)  are already in preparation co-ordinated 
by the A2A Steering Group.

By awarding the total amount, government has recognised 
that the new network will provide the efficient  delivery 
of access to archive services in electronic form to 
citizens in   their homes, offices and schools, and to the 
many people overseas who are interested in English history 
and culture.  With over 160 repositories already committed 
to some form of  participation, the project is a real 
example of 'joined-up government' in action.  The network  
will also become a new   component of the growing creative 
cultural economy within England, and   enable archives to 
make a significant contribution to the learning society   

A2A is a consortium of the Public Record Office (PRO), 	the 
British Library   (BL) and the Royal Commission on 
Historical Manuscripts (HMC), supported by   the National 
Council on Archives, the Society of Archivists and the   
Association of Chief Archivists in Local Government.
