Glasgow Museums Major Projects & Research Section The Major Projects & Research Section was created in September 2002 in order to ensure that all major projects are underpinned with the best current knowledge and to encourage and stimulate research into the rich collections of Glasgow Museums. The overall aim of the section is to develop Glasgow Museums as a centre of excellence for collections-related research.
The Section consists of the Major Projects and Research Manager plus four Research Managers in the subject areas of Art, Human History, Natural History and History of Technology. Each of the Research Managers will be responsible for developing and managing programmes of collections-related research in their subject areas.
The section is also responsible for developing and maintaining professional curatorial standards within Glasgow Museums and works closely with the curatorial staff, collections management and conservation sections to ensure that we meet these exacting standards.
The section has taken over responsibility for managing the content development side of the Kelvingrove New Century Project, making sure that all the displays are properly researched and interpreted. The section is also involved in the development of the new Museum of Transport that is being planned for a new site on the river Clyde. This landmark museum will create a more accessible and environmentally stable home for Glasgow’s significant Transport and Technology collections, and for the first time allow the proper interpretation of Glasgow’s important maritime history through the museum site, the Glenlee tall ship and our unique ship model collection.
