Celebrating UK Culture Online
Source: Collections Trust (UK)
From Executive Summary:
The UK’s museums, galleries, libraries and archives are embracing technology and social media to engage new and existing audiences, to provide access to their collections and to support learning and discovery.
This report has been created by the Collections Trust, the independent international voice for cultural collections as part of its ongoing work to celebrate digital culture in the UK. The report is structured in 5 sections:
- Delivering inspirational content
- Driving new research
- Promoting digital literacy
- Engaging new audiences
- Powering the Digital Economy
The projects and case studies included in this report highlight just a small part of the tremendously diverse digital work that is happening in museums, galleries, libraries and archives across the UK.
Looking ahead, there is an opportunity to bring a new and compelling cultural offer to the ‘screens generation’ – delivering rich cross-platform experiences which combine exciting content with authoritative knowledge.
