I have just come across Collections Link, a UK service. It is …

… the new national advisory service for collections management managed by MDA in partnership with the Institute of Conservation (ICON) and the National Preservation Office (NPO). [Collections Link]

It carries a range of materials, and presumably will develop further. Such advisory services are a feature of an environment with various sources of centralized public funding. In the educational sector, see The Digital Curation Centre or TASI (Technical Advisory Service for Images) for example.

The technology career ladder

Library leaders should be drawn from across the organization. Any idea that technology leaders are overly specialised or too distant from general library work is outmoded and counter-productive.
