The UK Freedom of Information Act and its impact on museums and galleries, in: Issues in Conservation Documentation: Digital Formats, Institutional Priorities and Public Access

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

A significant change in the United Kingdom’s information environment was brought about by the Freedom of Information Act (2000), which actually came into full force in 2005, providing new rights of access to information held by public authorities, subject to certain exemptions. This commissioned report considers the situation in the Museums and Galleries sector one year after the legislation’s implementation, assessing the challenges, benefits and operational impact.
