An informal Funders Network was established to facilitate the start of a useful dialogue between RLUK special collections and a range of funders currently supporting projects in UK Libraries and archives, and also to begin a conversation that can develop over time between the funders, who can also benefit from an exchange and sharing of news and developments to ensure minimum overlap between remits. This group meets 2-3 times a year to discuss areas of common interest and exchange news and views with regards to the UK funding landscape.
