The Challenge of Pulling Together an Archive

This morning I stumbled on the blog for the Lloyd’s Register Digitization Project. Lloyd’s register has to do with ships and shipping; as it has both modern and historical components I will refer you to Wikipedia for a full overview. Anyway, the blog post I linked to above discusses the first project, how the different records are stored, and how the records are being tracked and organized. An interesting peek into what looks like a huge project.
