The Museum Sector

The Museum Sector

The lead body for the sector is MLA (Museums, Libraries, Archives Council) - The London section is here. The MLA is due to be abolished.

The Museums in each region were organised into a Hub lead by leading Museums although this is about to change. The original hub model, for example, the London Hub consists of the Museum of London, the London Transport Museum, the Horniman Museum and the Geffrye Museum. It was set up by the Government as part of their 'Renaissance in the Regions' policy. The Hub maintain a set of Museum Development Officers who can offer advice. Details of the West Midlands Renaissance can be found here.

The Government's lead body is the Department for Culture, Media and Sports. Museum Staff are represented by the Museums Association. Independent museums by Association for Indepentent Museums (AIM)

The Culture24 is the 'national virtual museum' and provides a 'portal' to Britain's Museums. Advice on collections can be found on Collection Link. For ICT, museum web site design and documentation follow this link.
