Bridging European communities: investigating networks and collaborations models for museums, libraries and public cultural institutions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This paper presents an overview of the original research under development within the EU-funded FP7 SSH MeLA project, Research Field 03 (RF03) "Network of Museums, Libraries and Public Cultural Institutions." In this Research Field we are investigating innovative coordination strategies be-tween public European museums, libraries and public cultural institutions, for the benefi t of multicultural audiences and towards European integration. Museums and libraries, in particular, developed as historically separate insti-tutional contexts and distinct cultures, yet their commonalities are increasingly important to their sustainability in a globalised world. However, a theoretical framework to scope and address such collaborative model still needs to be developed in the specific context of a transnational and multicultural European society. The Research Field 03 team is framing its research along four thematic areas: Narratives for Europe, European Cultural and Scientific Heritage, Migration and Mobility, and Collaboration Models. Th e goal of our investigation is to lay the foundations for a theoretical framework sup-porting coordination and networking between museums, libraries and public cultural institutions at European level.
