Public Technology: How The National Archives is digitising 1,000 years of history

Public Technology: How The National Archives is digitising 1,000 years of history. “There can be few, if any, public bodies for whom the concept of ‘digital transformation’ will be quite so transformative as The National Archives. The organisation, a non-ministerial government department sponsored by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, manages hundreds of millions of documents spanning 1,000 years of British history. Its headquarters in Kew, in west London, requires well over 100 miles of shelving to store all these records – with another mile needed each year. All of which adds up to a pretty hefty digitisation project.”
