Part of the Collections Trust’s Going Digital Programme, this major one-day conference is specifically designed for those responsible for developing, managing and sharing museum collections with the public.

The Going Digital Conference will be presented in partnership with Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums at The Great North Museum, Newcastle upon Tyne on Monday 17 November 2014. The event is supported by Arts Council England.
