Abstract

Where do the interests represented by the REF Impact agenda converge with those of University Museums & Libraries? These are the obvious outlets for sharing and communicating stories of great academic research but what does this mean in practice? This paper outlines ways in which the University of Glasgow collections are being used to generate or enhance the impact of current University research and draws on both academic and cultural heritage work in defining ways to articulate engagement impacts. Further it reflects on the Museum and Library infrastructure required to support and prioritise engagement with key audiences.
