Suffolk heritage services merger proposal

Thanks again to Valmay Young for more news from Suffolk County Council - a meeting on November 8th could prove to be monumental for the county's archives and museums. From the council website:

Cabinet members will be asked to grant permission for the county council, in partnership with The Museum of East Anglian Life (MEAL), to develop a full business case supporting the creation of a new organisation which would run the archaeology and archive services currently provided by the council.

If given eventual approval, an integrated archaeology, archives and museum organisation would secure the future of Suffolk's heritage sector and open the door to new additional sources of funding, provide greater public access and increase the rate of digitisation of its collections.
