The Literature House in the Digital Age: New Directions for Literary Heritage

  This interdisciplinary project will situate the Edinburgh Literature House within the history of such institutions, to establish a context for an investigation of how the Literature House can now meet the needs of communities and stakeholders in an era of rapid technological change.

The project will involve historical and theoretical research, and the gathering and analysis of quantitative and qualitative data regarding user and stakeholder attitudes, expectations and modes of engagement. It will also involve analysis of how digital capabilities might be used within the Literature House project to fulfil strategic objectives, engaging users at local, national and global levels.
