HIAS Phase 3 Work Packages

The Heritage Information Access Strategy (HIAS) is a programme of interlinked projects designed to simplify and improve public access to heritage data held or generated by Historic England, by Local Authority Historic Environment Records and by other bodies.

HIAS phase 3 work packages

In Phase 3 the existing work packages will move forward to the development of systems and processes with additional work packages to support those that are in the development stage. Several of the work packages will be coordinated with projects funded through the Heritage Protection Commissions Programme.

The Phase 3 work packages are listed below with the respective leaders for each including their email addresses if you want more information about a particular work package. For more general information about the Heritage Information Access Strategy please contact Keith May.

Data supply and reconciliation between NRHE and HERS: research and development phase

This report presents the findings of the research and development phase of a project aimed at streamlining access to heritage information, in particular how data held in a national database of the historic environment could be transferred to Local Historic Environment Records. 

Subsequent to this the project team carried out a drilling-down exercise to provide a more refined estimate of the numbers of NRHE records which would need to be reconciled. You can view the results of the exercise in this document.

The sum of all shared national heritage record for England held by Historic England and by Local Authority Historic Environment Records (HERs) will be preserved for the future as a dispersed National Security Copy (NSC). For further information on the NSC please see here.
