Pacesetter update

4:34 PM

The data entry part of our pacesetter project has been completed. This means that one of our volunteers has sucessfully inputted around 1500 entries to the Archivists' Toolkit to create an xml file that we will now pass onto the custodial repository for them to transfer to their database.

If that all goes smoothly we will be able to return that section of the collection (all the Caledonian Railway drawings) to the National Archives of Scotland and get on with the measuring, referencing and inputting of the other 1500 drawings.

In other toolkit news, I'm attending a training day on XSLT stylesheets which will help me to customise how the finding aid reports are produced so they can be altered to present the information in more pleasing manner.
