Culture Grid


Last modified: May 7, 2010

The unique range of collections information within the Culture Grid can be used to create new services that enable more people to engage with collections.

New services could be created for people to:

  • find local collections to visit
  • know what collections would be useful for their families and friends, or school, university or work project etc
  • know what museum objects there are about popular stories, films, sports teams or holiday destinations etc

In fact, if you can think of a use for collections information, then someone somewhere can probably make it happen, but only if they can easily access the full range of information they need and that is where the Culture Grid comes in, because it offers easier access to a unique range of UK collections information.

New services can be made in a number of ways including:

  • simply presenting Culture Grid searches in web pages about a particular topic or for a particular audience by using the Culture Grid Search Box Builder
  • mixing collections information with other information services to more creatively present the wonders within collections to new audiences, using the Culture Grid API, which is openly available. Download a pdf about the Culture Grid API

Benefits for people using collections information from the Culture Grid include:

  • getting a unique range of collections information from a single source for free
  • getting collections information in different standards based ways to meet different needs
  • getting collections information so that it can be easily joined up with other types of information services for different audiences

All uses of collections information from the Culture Grid should:

  • acknowledge the organisation the data is originally from
  • link back to the original source (using the urls in the records)
  • retain any rights information that is within the records.
