Investing in Knowledge will enable every citizen to become directly involved in the exploration of the past and the invention of the future. Through networking knowledge it will create new and enticing routes to the collections of museums, libraries and archives so that everyone has access to the knowledge and information they need to shape their lives.

Investing in Knowledge builds on three major programmes through which MLA and its partners are working at regional and national levels to unlock the potential of the institutions in our sector:

Museums, libraries and archives lie at the heart of our society, both as storehouses of knowledge and as trusted sources of expertise and scholarship. They have the capacity to do much more to make an even bigger difference to people’s lives.

Investing in Knowledge offers a ready-made route to the future, to the knowledge society and to the knowledge economy. It is an investment in the future wellbeing of society.
