Activities & Groups

This section currently contains information on our Special Interest Groups (SIG) and other collaborative arrangements. The Mercian Collaboration has established a number of special interest groups to provide expert advice, and to support its aims and tasks. Further groups, either ongoing or finite task & finish, to meet particular partner needs are frequently discussed by the Directors’ Committee, but may also arise from discussions between Mercian membership organisations.

Group Sponsors

As of 2017, all SIGs have been assigned a Steering Group Sponsor, to provide further support, insight and communication.

Under Consideration

Currently (2019) special interest groups under consideration and discussion among member organisations and the Collaboration are:

  • Marketing & Communications
  • Metadata & Collections

For more details on these, or to discuss other potential groups, contact the Development Officer.
