Survey to develop Digital Access Plan

Making our collections interconnected
Every gallery, library, archive, museum and historical society in Tasmania is invited to provide information on its collection, and on the accessibility of Tasmania’s cultural collections. Even if your collection doesn't have an online presence  your information will still assist the research.

You are invited to take the survey

GLAM Peak is collecting information on all collections in Tasmania to develop a Digital Access Plan for museums and collections in Tasmania.

GLAM Peak is Australia’s peak representative body of the galleries, libraries, archives, historical societies and museums sectors. Its primary aim right now is to establish a shared vision and approach to digital access to Australia’s cultural collections through the development of a national framework.

To progress this, Tasmania is one of the first jurisdictions tasked with developing a Digital Access Plan. This work will be used as a pilot for other states and territories, and will help inform development of the national framework. By completing this survey you will help GLAM Peak gain greater understanding of the key issues they need to address together through Tasmania’s Digital Access Plan.

For more information please call Ross Latham on  03 6165 5579 or email ross.latham@education.tas.gov.au

Survey closes 26 September 2018
