This article describes a major digitisation programme aimed at improving online access to cultural resources from the UK's museums, libraries and galleries for lifelong learners and others. The programme provides free access to important areas of the country's diverse cultural, artistic, and community resources.

At time of writing, most of the projects are still in progress.
