We’ve been very fortunate to have two photographers working with us on the project. This week Katrina Zerilli has been taking some time to document the project in picture.

A few of the court books volumes, still in original bindings, are too fragile for this project to tackle.

Imaging of flat sheet material
Some of the 19th century cause papers are folded in three making little fat bundles which do not lie flat easily. Using the SMA 21 scanner (background) the bundles usually open flat enough that the scanner's gentle flattening action can take a good image.This view of the strongrooms shows the rows of cause papers. If you look carefully you can see little white stickers on the boxes which show which have been completed. It's very motivational to see more and more stickers as the weeks go by.
