Help: Projects

What are they?

Scran receives its images and other records from outside institutions. A Project is a batch of Scran resources sourced from a particular institution or individual.

Projects can be a useful way to locate materials from a particular part of the country and are often a good means of finding a large group of records on a particular theme or topic.


Where can I find them?

If you can't see a link to Projects anywhere on the page, use the navigation menu on the left to select Search then Projects.

Projects can be a useful way to find more records if you find one records on Scran which you particularly like.

On the record view of any Scran image or file, scroll to the bottom of the page until you see the Record Details box. In this box, you can click on Project Description to find out about the project a record belongs to, or View all records in project to see the rest of the records in the Project.
