No matter what kind of collections you have or what size they are you can easily become a part of the Culture Grid of UK collections. Adding information about 100 items or less can be done as simply as filling in an online form, which is just what Leicestershire and Northampton Museums did!
You could choose to add information about the highlights or ‘star’ items within your collections like Leicestershire Revealed and you can even upload images if you do not already have any online. It’s a great way to open up your collections to new audiences!
Once your collections are part of Culture Grid they can be easily discovered alongside other collections and automatically included within services such as Europeana, the European Cultural Portal and JISC MEDIA Hub, the academic video, image and audio resource.
To get started simply contact firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the collections you wish to add and we’ll advise on options and help get you going.
