This project, submitted to the urgency call for the AHRC Towards a National Collection (TANC) programme, will track and evaluate digital teaching with university museum and cultural heritage collections in the 2020-21 academic year. It will synthesise existing good practice and develop new case studies, investigate the pivot to online delivery of collections-based teaching and learning in universities, and identify gaps in skills, tools and infrastructure, as well as in the availability and interoperability of digital and digitised collections and of collections systems. The project will support university museums and other related collections custodians at a crucial turning point in their rapidly-developing collections work and teaching practice, and create guidance and case studies that will be of wider applicability in the sector The project is being run through UMIS -University Museums in Scotland and, in addition , to the University of Edinburgh, includes the University of St Andrews (lead), University of Glasgow, Hunterian Museum and the University of Dundee. The project was originally scheduled to run from August 2020 until July 2021 but delays in approval mean that these dates are under review.
