Culture Grid - Collections Trust seeks views and ideas

Culture Grid is the UK aggregator for content from museums, archives and libraries.

2014 marks the 8th Birthday of the Culture Grid, and the Collections Trust are carrying out a review of the platform and the service in order to inform their planning for 2015-18.

They are hoping to find out what works, what doesn’t and how the Culture Grid should evolve in order to continue meeting the needs of the professional community.

To initiate this conversation, there is a blog post setting out their view of the challenges and opportunities confronting the Culture Grid.

To have your say in the future of this important platform, you are invited to review this post and to share your thoughts about where the Culture Grid should go next. Comments are welcome either via the blog, on social media using the hashtag #cgfuture or by email.

The discussion will close by the end of November and a synthesis of the community’s view of the way forward will be published after that.
