Archives & Access Toolkit – Practice sharing resource now online

by on December 13, 2017

The Archives & Access project (2012–2017), funded by the Heritage Lottery and Tate, concluded this year. The project provided digital access to over 52,000 pieces from Tate Archive, and developed a range of outreach and participatory activities in order to support learning with archives at Tate Britain, on the Tate website, and with partners across the UK.

In order to share knowledge and experiences of all aspects of the project with others who are underway with – or considering embarking upon – digitisation initiatives, we have published the Archives & Access Toolkit on the Tate website.

The toolkit contains information on the approaches taken to all aspects of Archives & Access, including:

  • Funding and project management
  • Project design and development
  • Publication of materials
  • Supporting learning with archives

We found practice sharing and conversations with colleagues from across and beyond the sector to be invaluable when developing Archives & Access.  In that spirit, we hope this toolkit will be a useful resource for others working with archives, digitisation, and outreach.

Any questions about the project or the toolkit should be directed to

Hannah Barton (on behalf of the Archives & Access project team)
