Rick Lawrence – Digital Media Officer

My role at RAMM focuses on providing the means to provide visitors and researchers with museum content and fostering a culture where staff actively participate in digital publishing and broadcasting.

I provide a source of knowledge, skills and experience to support our online products, provide digital support for exhibitions, events and funding bids. I also regularly work with volunteers and with museum partners.

My work includes both the day to day service delivery and our work as a Major Partner Museum.

Based in the Collections Team I work closely with curators on knowledge management, collections data and images, funding bids, project planning and digital creation. Additionally I ensure our collections link with external bodies such as the Collections Trust, Culture Grid and Europeana.

I represent museums on Arts Council England’s South West Digital Forum.

Biography

I completed a BA Hons in Ancient History and Archaeology from The University of Manchester in 1981. I worked in various fields but with technology in one form or another. After working on Internet technologies and e-communications projects for the Department for Work and Pensions for over ten years I decided on a career change. Through volunteering on collections with the National Trust and other heritage volunteering, plus part time studying for a Postgraduate Certificate in Archaeology and Heritage Management from the University of Exeter awarded in 2009, I escaped the civil service for the world of museums.

I joined RAMM in 2008 to implement it’s online presence project. This included the museum website, revamped Exeter Time Trail and World Cultures webistes. I lead on software interactives in the 2008 – 2012 redevelopment and created RAMM’s social media channels to raise the museum’s profile.
