Subject Specialist Networks


Subject Specialist Networks are the focus for the expertise and collections knowledge of collections managers, keepers and curators throughout the UK. Previously supported through Renaissance in the Regions, they are a great way of sharing what you know, answering questions and helping to set the agenda for these vital collections. More information about SSNs can be found here.

You can contact Subject Specialist Networks via the links to their websites or email addresses below. Networks without links are awaiting a contact.  If you are a network contact and your information below is incorrect, please contact [email protected]
