In order to move forwards in this digitisation project, we have quickly realised that we need to gain a firmer knowledge of what we actually have down at Woolwich Arsenal. Numbers are extremely important, not only in order to gain more accurate quotes from suppliers but also to determine how long the full project is likely to last and the volume of material that will be in the process at any one time. As a result, Sean and Charlotte went down to the stores to begin the laborious task of sampling the number of documents in the archival boxes the collection is stored in.Read more "A trip to Woolwich Arsenal in search of numbers"
