October has been a major month in the digitisation project in terms of milestones that we have now reached. Firstly, the Collections Volunteers have completed the digitisation of the 35mm slides currently held in the archive! This is a huge achievement in itself, but on top of this – the team also passed the 10,000 digitised images mark. Naturally, we celebrated these landmarks with cake!
When we reached 10,000, we put the new marker on our progress ‘thermometer’ (above) and it gave us a good opportunity to look back on all of the images that have now been digitised.
This week, we have been starting work on the digitisation of the next type of photographic material (35mm film strips and larger format transparencies). The team have wasted no time in getting stuck straight into this next part of the project and it is now fully underway.
Over the next couple of weeks, we are delighted to be welcoming some new members to the Collections Volunteer team! We will be introducing them to the Mary Rose Trust, the Museum as well as the digitisation project.
