Abstract: The Scottish Transport and Industry Collections Knowledge Network (STICK) brings together a range of organisations and individuals who share a common interest in transport and industrial collections and promoting their care and enjoyment. While a multi-disciplinary steering group drives it forward, STICK is its members and their passion and knowledge. STICK facilitates shared learning and knowledge exchange through projects, events and active communication that have drawn on the knowledge and expertise of participants to achieve the aims of the group. STICK’s engaged membership and the success of its projects demonstrate the network’s strengths but, as an informal body, it faces various challenges as well. It is looking to use learning from its work to date, along with the combined experience and needs of its steering group and members, to address these challenges and continue to bring people together and achieve good outcomes for the sector in the future.
