The #CultureisDigital project was launched at the end of March 2018 by the Rt Hon Matt Hancock, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, coming out of the Government’s Culture White Paper commitment to review the digitisation of public collections and enhance the online cultural experience.
As one of the commitments from the report, https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/culture-is-digital, The National Archives was asked to set up a Digitisation Taskforce to work with a broad reach of cultural sector representatives in order to explore a new strategic approach to the digitisation and presentation of cultural objects.
This paper proposes to discuss the work of the Taskforce and the results of the survey it undertook, and explore the themes that emerged, for example, content strategies, standards, data interoperability, preservation and sustainability, different economic models to fund digitisation, and skills development. The paper will show what the group achieved, and how it intends to take the work forward.
