SPRI Review 2006: SPRI Website

SPRI Website

Use of the SPRI website continues to grow, with the level of usage double what it was two years ago. This is partly a reflection on the ever-increasing amount and quality of material online. A major project this year has been the launch of the first phase of the SPRI Museum Online Catalogue. The first set of records to be loaded was that for the Arctic Material Culture Collections, as part of a project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). Items can be searched for and listed in a variety of ways. A particularly popular feature is the photographic gallery, which provides thumbnail images of almost every item in the collection, linked to a detailed description. The initial development work carried out for this project will enable further collections to be added to the site relatively quickly as cataloguing and photography are completed.
