    Abstract

    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. The article describes the programme, highlights some of the projects, and looks at areas where improvements to programme coordination might have been made. At time of writing, most of the projects are still in progress.
