One of our projects

Ceredigion County Archives

Website for these busy county Archives, located in Aberystwyth.

Special features: The project requirements were to include a searchable on-line version of the 3,000 pages of typed listings of the archive collections. This was achieved through scanning and OCR of the documents, plus customised modules to re-format the pages for the site, and a search facility customised for the particular needs of the Archive content.

The site was initially launched in 2005, and re-designed and extended in 2009. The site can now be updated immediately to reflect new acquisitions, and also allows the staff to create additional pages on specific topics.

Technical features:The original content management system used PHP and XML/XSLT to generate static HTML pages with search facilities using Perl and PHP. The revised version was simplified to use PHP and MySQL. The site uses the Technoleg Taliesin content management tools to allow the client update the site themselves.

Development partners: Website design, build and hosting by Technoleg Taliesin.
