Opportunities for researchers to develop cross-collection public engagement with research (PER) activities include trails and multi-site exhibitions that span more than one Oxford University Gardens, Libraries and Museums (GLAM) institution, some examples of which are highlighted below. A cross-collection approach can be an opportunity to interrogate the GLAM collections by an over-arching theme or discipline.
For an initial chat about PER opportunities with GLAM, particularly for activities spanning more than one GLAM institution, researchers may wish to contact Hattie Warburton or Emma Webster in the GLAM Research and Impact team.
The categories and lists below are for illustration only and are by no means exhaustive. There are certain to be more possibilities and opportunities for working across GLAM’s collections and venues depending on the nature of the project so researchers should get in touch.
Please be aware that GLAM venues have full and busy programmes and it may not be possible to pick up activities that have already been fully developed or to deal with urgent requests. Ideally, activities should be co-created with GLAM from project conception and researchers should get in contact early so that we can work together to develop your ideas. Please note that while researchers may contact GLAM departments directly they are also encouraged to contact departmental/Divisional PER facilitators for interim support/guidance.
