Museums, libraries and archives are both providers of quality material to the internet and places where the public can learn how to access it. The provision of online information and services, particularly through Broadband, helps to support people’s learning, to build confident communities and to promote an inclusive society.

We will:

  • Monitor the level of connectivity of our sector institutions and seek ways to improve it
  • Help to develop the next stage of the People’s Network so that it can meet local and individual needs
  • Manage the Advantage West Midlands Libraries
  • Challenge and extend its remit
  • Co-ordinate a regional approach toward electronic content creation and digitisation policies in our sector
  • Assist in the development of regional cultural e-portal(s)
  • Support agreed ICT standards and interoperability rules for publicly funded schemes
  • Develop a three year MLA West Midlands ICT Policy and action plan
  • Promote the roles of the sector in the delivery of e-Government

The West Midlands ICT Network holds informal meetings 2 to 3 time a year, each based around a theme or subject. The last event was held on 22 November 2006.

Meetings will be advertised on this website and through our newletter INSIGHT and our E-alert news.
