Finding the Way: Improving Access to the Collections of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society
Fenton, Candida
Program: Electronic Library and Information Systems, v41 n4 p353-364 2007
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to describe the Images for All digitisation project at the Royal Scottish Geographical Society, and lessons learned from it. Design/methodology/approach: This paper describes the background to the project and collections held. It focuses on the development of the project web site, the digitisation of 100 images from the collection and the nature of project management in a small-scale project. Findings: There are many potential challenges faced by project managers working in small voluntary organisations, but these can be overcome. Originality/value: This paper gives a direct insight into some of the challenges facing smaller organisations with limited full-time staff and so reliant on volunteers, which are often overlooked.
