Mapping Intangible Cultural Resources through Reading Culture Analysis

In 2011, the City of London started developing a cultural resource database and mapping capability to provide a calculation of the economic impact of culture in the city and an assessment London’s cultural facilities infrastructure, with focus on tangible cultural resources. Although potentially more valuable than the tangible cultural assets, intangible cultural resources have not been explored in equal depth as they require specific methodologies and approaches to be captured and mapped out. The aim of this post-doctoral research is to define and apply a new methodology to discover intangible cultural resources of the City of London based on assessment of library and museums habits obtained via statistical analysis of public library and museums databases.
