Dear Colleagues,

 

The SW Federation of Museums & Art Galleries has just started a resource bank to extend the shelf life and distribution of materials and information from the SW Museums Skills Programme on its website, http://www.swfed.org.uk/resources/previous-training-resources.

 

One of the sessions was about social media, so we’d be happy to put a copy of the collated responses to Rosie’s query on the site.  We are limiting ourselves to the topics covered by the training workshops at the moment because managing anything more extensive is too great a task for a volunteer run organisation.   Issues about copyright, currency and quality of information just escalate.

 

On a wider scale it leads to the debate about where are all the materials created through the Renaissance programme going to be archived. A tremendous amount of work was lost when the AMC’s and regional MLA’s closed down.  I know this subject has come up before and many are taking action.  Unfortunately not all.

 

Best wishes,

 

Vicky Dawson

 

Vice Chair of SW Federation of Museums & Art Galleries

Subject: Sharing Information

 

Dear all,

 

Many people on the GEM list very generously offer to share information they have gathered with anyone who asks for it, such as Rosie with Twitter tips.

 

At the moment I don't need tips on Twitter but I might in a couple of years time. So can I make a suggestion to GEM? What about getting a copy of these collated responses from the original requester as a Word or PDF document and then put them on the GEM website somewhere so that they can be downloaded as and when needed by others?

 

What do people think?

 

All the best,

 

Colin Hynson

Hello all

 

Does anyone have a tips sheet for museums/heritage sites on how to use twitter? My colleague has set up a Twitter account for Valentines Mansion, and although I am a massive nerd and twitterer, and have talked her through it I don’t have time to write her up a how-to guide. (Only 6.5 days of my contract left. Argh!). If anyone has one to hand we’d be very grateful if you could email us a copy.

 

Many thanks

 

Rosie
