On 27 July we will be joined by representatives from a number of archives holding related archive material for a colloquium ‘Cause Papers Unwrapped’. The day will be opened by Professor Bill Sheils, who will be talking about the significance of the records of the church courts for scholarship in general. We will also be welcoming Diane Ranyard of Lincoln University, who will be giving an undergraduate researcher’s eye view of what makes this digitial resource useful – and how it could be better suited to undergraduate use. The project managers of both the Cause Paper Projects, the Andrew W Mellon funded cataloguing project, and this present JISC funded imaging project, will be talking about how the projects were built and delivered: sharing what worked, what didn’t, what we’d do differently if we did it again, and what we’ve done that we hope can be re-used and developed by other archives. In the afternoon we shall be having a round-table discussions discussing the challenges of making this type of material available to the whole spectrum of interested user groups.
