Logo VA Museum

Preserving and sharing born-digital and hybrid objects from and across the National Collection is a foundational collaborative project funded through the AHRC’s programme: Towards a National Collection: opening UK heritage to the world. Led by the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), in collaboration with the British Film Institute (BFI) and Birkbeck, University of London, the project addresses the challenges of collecting, preserving, linking and sharing born-digital and hybrid collections with the public. It will involve participants from across the national collection and museum sector, as well as partners and stakeholders outside the UK, focusing on three key areas of digital collecting: collections management, digital conservation, and access, experience and meaning.
The Research Fellow will work on all aspects of preserving and sharing born-digital and hybrid objects from and across the National Collection as a core member of the project team. Based at the V&A but working across project partner institutions, the Research Fellow will play a vital role in research, in the delivery of the project’s activities and in project administration. They will coordinate meetings between the project’s Principal Investigator (PI), Co-Investigators (Co-Is) and project partners, support the PI in the organisation of research workshops, and in the writing and dissemination of reports and research outputs.
