  • The Golden lessons of 10 years and £270m ofDigitisation in the UK:1. Don’t let the Technologists organise the party2. Museums, archives and libraries are DIFFERENT3. Don’t scan until you know why you’re scanning4. More does not equal better
  • The evolution of the Digital business model
  • 2001:‘Let’s sell pictures of things from ourcollection on the Internet’
  • 2011:‘Let’s sell pictures of things from ourcollection on the Internet’
  • The real Digital business model
  • Give 90% away of it as free, open-access data because thePoliticians and Technologists willlove you, it will act as marketingfor your institution and it showsyour commitment to youreducational remit.Keep control of the 8% which youknow will sell regularly on coffeecups and postcards.Lavish money and attention onthe 2% that has a real chance ofmaking money through licensing.
  • “Our job in this era is to help people outside the museum succeed at what they want to be able to do.”
  • This is no longer a matter of choice. The highly located, reflexiveVictorian model of museums, archives and libraries is beingreplaced by something which ‘connects to the culture of ourcustomers’.How long it takes you to make the journey, and whether you areready in time to ensure that your service is still relevant totomorrow’s consumers is entirely up to you.Which is why you need Digital strategies now

  • 1. Provide money2. Create a ‘can do’ culture where it’s ok to fail3. Keep clear4. Don’t ask for evidence5. Use it yourself
