Reports from the Legal Strand of the Mobile Collections project are now available to download.

The Mobile Collections project brought together a team of researchers and practitioners from research centres, museums and libraries across Cambridge through a series of knowledge exchange activities during 2013. 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). A collection of publications related to the project which can be found online here.

We are a network of researchers at the University of Cambridge who are interested in how the use of digital tools is transforming scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. This transformation spans both the content and practice of humanities research, as the diffusion of digital technologies opens up new fields of study and generates research questions which breach traditional disciplinary boundaries.
