Cultural Heritage: Assessment: Europeana Publishes “Impact Playbook: For Museums, Libraries, Archives and Galleries”

From Europeana:

Do you need to demonstrate the impact of your work? Are you curious to know what effect it has on people’s lives, and how the daily activities of your museum, library or archive contribute to create that change? Are you looking for tools to help you measure it? If you’ve found yourself asking these questions, we’ve got just the thing to help you out.


This Playbook has been developed by cultural heritage and impact professionals to guide you through the process of identifying the impact that your cultural heritage institutions has, or is aiming to have. It provides a common approach that can be applied throughout the cultural heritage sector. In this release, the Playbook explores the first phase of undertaking an impact assessment. It is divided into six steps, each one focusing on a clear goal and outcome.
