Resource develops learning and access standard for museums, archives and
libraries


London, 26 September 2001 -- Resource: The Council for Museums, Archives
and Libraries is developing a new learning and access standard for the
sector.  After extensive consultation in 2000/01 the second draft of the
framework paper incorporates the comments received from the three domains,
the findings from the think-tank and the results of a seminar.

The second paper Inspiring Learning: A framework for access and learning in
museums, archives and libraries will form the basis of the 12 consultation
meetings which are being run in each English region, Scotland, Wales and
Northern Ireland during October and November 2001.  It is anticipated that
the 12 consultation meetings will lead to a third draft paper which will
also be on the Resource website for consultation and information before a
final paper is produced for the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in
April 2002.

The new framework paper can be viewed on the Resource website at
www.resource.gov.uk or a hard copy can be obtained from Kina Legg on 020
7273 1438.  Resource welcomes views on the framework.  Please send comments
to Sue Wilkinson, Senior Adviser: Learning, Access and Audience
Development, Resource, 16 Queen Anne's Gate, London SW1H 9AA or email
[log in to unmask] by 16 November 2001.

Gina Lane, Resource's Quality Standards Adviser, commented:  "In order to
support museums, archives and libraries in implementing an outcomes based
standard which places great emphasis on collecting information from users.
Resource has appointed consultants, the Research Centre for Museums and
Galleries (RCMG), Department of Museum Studies, University of Leicester, to
develop methodologies which can be used to assess the impact of the museum,
archive and library experience on learning."

The team from the Research Centre are professionals with experience of
working in museums, archives and libraries and of developing research
methodologies for assessing the impact of learning.  They will be
consulting extensively across the three domains.  The research team is
headed by Professor Eilean Hooper Greenhill, Director of RCMG and Head of
the Department of Museum Studies, University of Leicester, and includes
Jocelyn Dodd, Research Manager of RCMG, and ex-manager of Nottingham City
Museums and Galleries; Dr Theano Moussouri, researcher and lecturer; Dr
Marlene Morrison, Deputy Director of Research at the School of Education
and Deputy Director of the Centre for Citizenship Studies in Education,
University of Leicester; John Vincent, previously Principal Libraries and
Archives Officer, London Borough of Lambeth; Chris Pickford, archivist
specialising in local authority and François Matarasso, writer and
specialist in cultural policy.

Resource: The Council for Museums, Archives and Libraries is a strategic
agency working with and on behalf of museums, archives and libraries.
Resource has three main objectives, to provide strategy, advocacy and
advice.  The organisation undertakes work in all three of these areas to
improve the context in which museums, archives and libraries operate and to
improve services for users and potential users.

In May 2001 Resource appointed a think-tank with a remit to develop the
framework of the learning and access standard, to ensure that it represents
the views and needs of museums, archives and libraries, and to take account
of and adopt best practice within the sectors and from the wider cultural
sector.

The members of the think tank were: Stephen Allen, Chair, Group for
Education in Museums; David Anderson, Director, Learning and Visitor
Services, Victoria & Albert Museum; Jonathan Douglas, Professional Adviser,
School & Youth Libraries, Library Association; Ken Hall, County Archivist,
Essex Record Office; Kathy Gee, Director, West Midlands Regional Museums
Council; Vic Gray, Chairman, National Council on Archives and a member of
the Resource Board; Viv Griffiths, President, Society of Chief Librarians
and member of the Resource Board; Roland Jackson, Head of Learning, Science
Museum; Miranda McKearney, Development Director, The Reading Partnership;
David Murray, Director, London Libraries Development Agency; Geoff Pick,
Manager, Reader Services Division, London Metropolitan Archives and Norinne
Betjemann, Senior Education Adviser, Arts Council of England.
