Abstract

This poster describes a mass digitisation project led by the National Library of Wales to digitize archives and special collections about the Welsh experience of the First World War. The digital archive that will be created by the project will be a cohesive, digitally reunified archive that has value for research, education, and public engagement in time for the hundredth anniversary of the start of the First World War. In order to maximize impact of the digital outputs of the project, it has actively sought to embed methods that will increase its value to the widest audience. This paper describes these approaches and how they sit within the digital life cycle of project development.
