Support For Museums Galleries Scotland

MGS LogoAlthough UKOLN's funding from the MLA was to provide support for the museums, libraries and archives in England, thanks to additional financial support from Museums Galleries Scotland we were in a position to provide a limited level of support to museums and galleries in Scotland.

This support was based on an email list which is open to members of the Museums Galleries Scotland. In addition the various resources we have developed for the cultural heritage sector, including our IntroByte briefing documents and our Cultural Heritage blog will be used to enhance the support we provide to the sector.

About The Support Service

An email list,, was set up for full and associate members of Museums Galleries Scotland.

The list was used for queries from approved organisations on topics related to UKOLN areas of expertise which includes use of the Social Web and Web 2.0, Collection level descriptions, digital preservation, digitisation standards and interoperability.

Who Provides The Support Service?

The support services were provided by Brian Kelly, Ann Chapman and Marieke Guy.
