Why you need this guide

What will you learn from this?

With footfall in museums still below pre-pandemic levels, there remains a need for the UK heritage sector to find alternative ways to share its archives with the world. Cultural value aside, the economic benefits of doing so are now evident, too. The tide is turning, and many heritage organisations will already be embarking on the process. The key to success lies in truly understanding how digitisation works and having an effective plan in place. The building blocks of a successful digitisation project are all in the planning. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the Project Strategy and Project Planning to ensure your digitisation project goes down in heritage history… for the right reasons.
