Report for European Museums to help on digitalisation
Spokes resource
December 2023 - This first part of the DOORS project Sparkle report seeks to allow small and medium-sized museums across Europe to steer the direction of the sector's digital transformation. We want to reduce the digitalisation gap by creating the space for small institutions to voice their needs and offering them access to knowledge, resources, expertise, and an incubation programme.

Tool for museums to assess the digital maturity
Spokes resource
December 2023 - The DOORS consortium developed a specific tool to help museums understand the digital maturity levels of their organization. This tool, called the Self-Reflection Tool for Museums, is shaped like an engaging card deck. The card deck facilitates a collective self-reflection exercise in which everyone within the museum is invited to participate. Each card includes a question that encourages an in-depth reflection on the status quo and potential enablers and blockers as a first step toward formulating more sustainable digital strategies.

DOORS - Breaking the Digital Ceiling (Museums)
Spokes resource
December 2023 - The DOORS Breaking the Digital Ceiling publication is a roadmap that gathers the voices of the DOORS project team, the experts, and the museums that have participated in the project. All of them come together to outline, comment on, and contest the project's methodologies and practices. The document aims to spread the used knowledge-sharing practices and frameworks and the design of the incubation programme to create long-term impact, hopefully inspiring granular changes at a museum level, and more attuned funding schemes.
