             Projects: Digitisation

The collections are an important resource, locally, nationally and, in the case of the fossils, internationally. They are regularly used by schools, universities and individual researchers.

The number of items total over 250,000 objects. The use if the internet to improve access to this material for study and research has been investigated in a number of ways.

The catalogue itself is digital, although not currently accessible to the general public. However, some of the items have been photographed and are available in
Darwin Country, and a start has been made in adding information to Discovering Shropshire History.

The Friends of Ludlow Museum support the initiatives for widening access to the collections and has been instrumental in securing a substantial grant awarded in 2015 for the digitisation of the geological collections.
