Continuing the scheme for museums in the region, and extending the implementation of the scheme to libraries and archives.
MLA’s Designation Scheme celebrates the leading museum, library and archive collections in England: those that are deemed to be of outstanding national and international importance.
The Scheme recognises that organisations with Designated collections care for a significant part of England’s cultural heritage. It seeks to identify where those collections are held, in order to enhance our knowledge and understanding of England’s cultural assets.
The proven benefits of identifying a designated collection include:
creation of a focus for awareness and profile building
The next two meetings are scheduled for 25&26 October and 14&15 February. Applications received by Friday 11 August will be likely to be considered at the October meeting.
Those interested in applying are advised to contact their Regional Agency prior to submitting and application to MLA. Your contact in the North West Region in Paul Fraser Webb, Development Officer (Standards).
