Subject: Archives Network Wales website
In January, the Archives Network Wales project started to create a
web-searchable index to archive sources in Wales. It is supported
by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the project partners, the
members of Archives Council Wales. The site forms a strand of
the National Archives Network; the project involves the creation of
fonds/collection level descriptions for the holdings of the partners,
supplementing existing descriptions which will be transferred into
the system. Full details of the project can be found on the ANW
website, which has now gone live.
Features of the website available now:
Project background, scope and programme
List of project partners and links to their websites
Page of links to other archive sources on the web
The searchable interface will go live in September 2003 and will be
continually updated until December 2005. The team has just
completed work on the collections of the National Library of Wales,
and has moved on to those for the Anglesey County Record Office.
The records for each project partner will be posted on the website
as they are finished.
Features going live in September 2003
