Pacesetter update

12:25 PM

Events have overtaken us here with our pacesetter project. As I explained earlier we are still capturing the extra information required for the Montague Smith collection before we can start using Archivist's Toolkit (AT) to input the data.

However, we have in the meantime started another collection which is being catalogued straight into the AT. Its the Edinburgh City Engineers' Plan collection which currently has two bundles of drawings entered into the database and looks like this:

What does this mean for the pacesetter's project? Well the main goal of the project was to produce catalogues in EAD xml format which we will be doing just for a different collection in the first instance. Hopefully it should mean that we can evaluate how well the AT works for us sooner and share our experience using it with others.
