The Publications department at the Society recently made a successful funding bid to Publishing Scotland as part of their ‘Go-Digital’ Fund. This will allow the Society to use their out-of-print books, which are currently hosted on the Archaeology Data Service servers as PDF files, as a pilot project for bringing the content of archived publications back to the Society’s own website and making it more interactive, searchable and discoverable. This will have the following benefits:

This project will act as a pilot for the rest of our archives and for digital publication of new material, so that eventually all of the Society publications will be held on the Society own website (as well as being archived at ADS) and will be fully searchable and discoverable.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could answer 3 quick questions in a survey as part of this project by following this link. There is even a prize of a Society book of your choice if you win the ‘name the project’ competition!

The survey will close at midnight on the 30th April 2016.
