Museums, galleries and other organisations serving the cultural sector are increasingly engaged in conducting original research, whether through small-scale internal projects or larger, externally-funded initiatives. Ongoing research is creating multitudes of data, presenting us all with a management challenge.

This is especially true in an era where there is a growing presumption that the results of research will be available through open access.

This day-long symposium, hosted by the British Museum and organised by the Museum Librarians and Archivists Group, brings together a variety of authoritative speakers who are actively engaging the question of how we meet this challenge as cultural research organisations, both now and with an eye to the future.

Registration for pre-booked participants will open at 10.30.
