A Scoping Grant funds a structured report that incorporates expert advice on a range of areas relating to collections management and the development of your collection.
The report will provide
- an overview of the current status of the collection
- analysis of overall condition, significance, existing and potential use, levels of access, and existing documentation
- a conclusion with recommendations about next steps and development goals for the service
The structured nature of the report is designed to ensure consistency of approach, and enable long- and short-term measurement of the impact of the report.
The Scoping Grant funding scheme is a rolling programme with decisions being made on a quarterly basis.
