D. Nicholson and G. Macgregor (Centre for Digital Library Research, Strathclyde University, UK), OCLC Systems & Services, 2003, Vol. 19 No. 3, pp. 96-9
This article describes a major digitisation programme aimed at improving online access to UK cultural resources from the UK's museums, libraries and galleries for lifelong learners and others. The programme is supported by lottery funding of £50m and provides free access to important areas of the country's diverse cultural, artistic, and community resources. The article describes the programme, highlights some of the projects, and looks at areas where improvements to programme coordination might have been made. At time of writing, most of the projects are still in progress.
