The Future of Welsh Repositories

The Future of Welsh Repositories

An interesting part of my work on the Welsh Experience of WW1 project here at the National Library has been researching and writing a report on the future of digital repositories in Wales. I am pleased to say, thanks to the hard work of the many people who contributed towards it, we can now make this report available for everyone to read. In it you will find an overview of the digital repository resources in Wales as well information on the developments we’ve made as part of the WW1 project and some suggestions as to how things might be improved going forward. The report addresses important issues such as the need to provide repository solutions to organisation that do not have ready access to systems and support (for example local archives and museums) and explores ways that a central repository system might work for these collections. I hope you find it an interesting and informative read and please get in touch if you have any comments or suggestions.
