I’ve written about the merger of the National Archives of Scotland and the General Register Office for Scotland. This is to remind you that as of April 1, the merger will be completed:

“From  1 April 2011 the name of the merged NAS-GROS organisation will be the National Records of Scotland (NRS) The strapline  for the new organisation will be “preserving the past; recording the present; informing the future”

Many of you will recall being consulted prior to the selection of the new name. Some felt that it was important that ‘archives’ should be included in the new title to ensure that the archival function of the newly merged institution remained visible. Following consultation, it was found that the title National Records of Scotland had clear support from staff and a variety of stakeholders and was also the option preferred by Ministers.  A shorter and more general title was thought to best reflect the various functions of the newly merged institution.”
