Guest Blog Posts: An Opportunity To Publicise Your Work
The following invitation was made to potential contributors to this blog:
Are you involved in making use of networked technologies to support the provision of services in the cultural heritage sector? Are you doing interesting or innovative work? Do you have experiences which you would like to share with others in the cultural heritage sector? Or are you working in a different sector but feel your experiences may be of interest to those working in cultural heritage organisations?
If this is the case, why not share your experiences by publishing a guest blog post on UKOLN’s cultural heritage blog?
However this blog was closed on 31 March 2011. We are no longer looking for guest blog posts.
