Abstract

This research paper evaluates the use and impact of the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC)-funded Cymru1914 online digital archive of primary sources relating to World War One (WWI) from Libraries, Special Collections and Archives across Wales. Commemoration of WWI has seen a boom in project funding, including digital activity, funded through disparate initiatives. However, there has been little formal research or analysis of the use and impact of these digital outputs or their implications for funding policy. This research, therefore, seeks to answer two key questions: what is the use and impact of the Cymru1914 digital resources and secondly, what are the implications for evaluation methods and funding policy for similar projects?
