Collections Link training bursaries

04 September 2006

The bursaries are available to anyone working within the museums, libraries and archives sector and are aimed at enabling practitioners to access training and develop their skills across the full range of collections management disciplines.

Applications are now invited for the first round of grants, which will offer ten free places at MDA Direct training courses in September and October 2006. MDA Direct is an annual programme of training courses held across the UK, aimed at new entrants through to expert practitioners. Courses address a range of collections management issues and take a grounded, practical approach to ensure that they are tailored to the realities practitioners face in their everyday work.

The Collections Link bursaries will fund places at the following MDA Direct courses:

  • Copyright Essentials, London, 4 September
  • Licensing Essentials, London 5 September
  • Documentation for Accreditation, Swindon, 19 September
  • Documentation Essentials, Sheffield, 18 October
