This report maps the findings of a study into the use of toolkits and similar online resources by researchers and practitioners working with(in) the museum and heritage sector.

The study and report was undertaken by Dr Helen Mears and Dr Susannah Eckersley, Newcastle University, as part of the HERA funded research project en/counter/points: (re)negotiating belonging through culture and contact in public place and space (2019-2022), which focused on relationships between belonging and public space.

The report includes a review of existing online resources available to those working on museums and belonging, and the results of a targeted survey undertaken with museum and heritage sector researchers and practitioners regarding their use of such resources.

The findings of the survey point to the need for sector-specific resources which provide clear orientation to complex issues as well as practical guidance, including by providing examples of practice.
