Hall, W., Hughes, G.V., Martinez, K., Weal, M.J. and Wills, G.B. (2000) Digitising the Turing Archive: A Pilot Study s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


This report presents a summary of the pilot project to produce an on-line version of a selected portion of the archive of Alan Turing held at King’s College, Cambridge. The design and creation of a database making use of information held in the archive catalogue is discussed. The production of a Web based interface to access the on-line materials is described. The practical issues involved in digitising documents are covered and the lessons learnt from this process are included. Finally, the report also presents an effort model, and sample timings from which cost estimates can be obtained.
