OUMP in the Press

Jessica Suess, Digital Partnership Manager, Oxford University Museums

At the end of a year (calendar, academic or financial) we often find ourselves spending a bit of time reviewing our data for the year to understand how we are doing.

This year I spent a few minutes with the press clippings we have collected over the last 12 months to get an idea of who has been talking about us and what they have been saying - and there's no more fun, light touch way to look at this data than a Wordle!

Have a quick peak at our 2015 press coverage! A few key highlights: the Museum of Natural History was nominated for the Art Fund's Museum of the Year prize and toured the Dodo across the country, and the Ashmolean raised money to acquire Turner's Oxford, saving it from being exported outside the country. If you look closely you can see reference to some of our blockbuster exhibitions including William Blake at the Ashmolean and the Dear Harry exhibition at the Museum of the History of Science, plus a hint at the recruitment for a new Director for the Pitt Rivers Museum.
