Etched on Devon's Memory website - Devon County Council
We have developed a customised website management system for the Local Studies Service of Devon Library. The system enables effective management of both the Local Studies holdings and the content of the 'Etched on Devon's Memory' website. System Simulation worked closely with the library staff to build the software infrastructure for this website and collections database.
The 'Etched on Devon's Memory' website provides integrated access to web pages and references to books, periodicals, newspapers, illustrations, maps and other information sources held in local collections across the county. It can be searched in a variety of ways - by collection, sources, catalogues, subjects, people etc. The subject coverage extends to all aspects of Devon, past and present, but there is also much information on the South West region and some non-local information held in special library collections or in works written by local authors.
This website was supported by the New Opportunities Fund to digitise historic content and make these available to the public via the web.
