Scoping grants

A Scoping Grant funds a  report that incorporates expert advice on a range of areas relating to collections management and the development of your collection.

The report will provide

  • an overview of the current status of the collection
  • analysis of its overall condition, significance, existing and potential use, levels of access, and existing documentation
  • a conclusion with recommendations about next steps and development goals for the service

The Scoping Grant funding scheme is a rolling programme with decisions being made on a quarterly basis.
