Cataloguing Guide

This guide describes the importance of the cataloguing process as a vital step in our Digitisation project which aims to make as much archive material accessible online as possible. Below is detailed guidance on how best to fill in the Item Catalogue form including tips on making sure we record all the information we need and conventions for standardising the way we communicate that information. This all goes towards making our online catalogue search tool as user-friendly as possible!

If you want to know more about our Digitisation project or the ODIN Database project, have a look at the Current and Planned Research Projects page.

This guide also provides some introductory guidance for the physical storage of archive material as part of cataloguing. This guide does not cover any other aspect of collections management, digitisation or website content management.
