So, now that the Archive has been created and the project phase has come to an end, what are our plans for the future?
We will be re-naming the archive My Leicestershire History – as we think this name more clearly describes what the site is about.
The site and collection will be maintained by the University of Leicester Library and we will continue promoting and publicising it.
Future development of the collection is uncertain at the moment but meetings of the Steering Group will continue for the time being and within the Library we will be looking at how we can sustain digitisation initiatives in the future. We have learnt a lot over the course of the project and now have an ‘infrastructure’ for digitisation work on which we can build.
