Bloomberg Connects

Kingston Museum has opened up its collections by launching a new, free digital guide featuring four community-led trails, created in conjunction with the borough’s Hong Kong, Korean, Tamil and Ukrainian communities. The free guide joins more than 350 cultural institutions around the globe on the Bloomberg Connects app. On the app you will find maps, audio, videos and more!

“We are very excited about the launch of the new digital app for Kingston Museum. This guide allows visitors from around the world access to the many objects, people and stories represented in our collections, it also allows us to showcase unique perspectives on our collections from different communities. This new platform will be regularly updated with the latest research, projects and different perspectives on our varied collections.” Cllr Afy Afilaka

Digital Preservation in Kingston

The Kingston Heritage Service mission is to preserve all documents and records of Kingston Upon Thames and local residents in the borough. Kingston History Centre is using a digital preservation software called Preservica, to manage and preserve born digital records. We are aiming to, through the use of Preservica, to collect digital records, including from community organisations, as much as possible.

We want to hear your views about what you think should be prioritised first and foremost!

We would be grateful if you could complete the following survey to help inform our born-digital collecting going forward. We are always open to suggestions for future collecting.
