The project researched the complex legal issues associated with mobility and digital cultural collections, including those concerning protection of intellectual property, in particular copyright, and mapped current developments in mobile access to aggregated data across different institutions in the cultural heritage sector through a series of case studies. A series of workshops and seminars took place with the aim of stimulating debate, challenging assumptions, and encouraging new collaborations between researchers and practitioners across the cultural heritage sector. The project was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
