Rosemary Lynch

Director, Collection Care, Tate

Rosemary Lynch was appointed Director of Collection Care at Tate in November 2013.

This followed 25 years in further and higher education. Where Rosemary lead innovation in learning, research and student services and managing organisational change.

A librarian by profession, the twin themes of collection care and access have informed Rosemary’s practice throughout her career.

Tate holds national collections of British Art and International Modern and Contemporary Art. Including works of art, library and archival material.

Tate’s Collection Care team is responsible for managing, preserving and enabling access to the collections. Ensuring they are available for current visitors and future generations to enjoy.

Digital capture and discovery are important aspects of this work. And the Archives and Access project has been a vital step in demonstrating the power of new tools and technologies. Both to enrich the collections in our care and to reach and inspire new audiences.
