Who's PastView built for?
What our users say...
Working in the vault, we are fortunate to be able to flick through photograph albums, read correspondence files, and watch old film footage from years gone by... However, this is the first time that we have been able to open up our cultural heritage for everyone to explore – wherever they are in the world. It is a very exciting moment for the Archives team.
Global Head of Archives
The value of any collection is only ever fully realised when its contents are accessible, so we needed a user-friendly platform that did not sacrifice the needs of serious research. We needed a way to showcase the breadth and depth of our collections in an attractive way that offered powerful, customisable search options when users required them."

The Sandhurst Collection
With PastView we are now able to edit our content and manage our online data in a way we were never able to do before. Incorporating a legacy system into a new format was understandably not straight-forward. However, the team at TownsWeb were especially patient and approachable; being keen to ensure that the system met our needs - which it certainly does.

Archives & Records Association
We are always looking for ways to improve the benefits we provide to our members. ARC Magazine has always been a key benefit and the last 18 months has seen it transformed with its move to online publication. Hosting on the PastView platform takes this to a new level and provides even more benefit with the great search function and the ability to access all the back issues, going back to 2011, in one place.
Burma Star Memorial Fund
Visitors to the website will find a comprehensive archive which paints a detailed picture of the complexities of the Burma Campaign. We are delighted that every element of the archive can be searched in an accurate, responsive and simple manner. As we had requested, the website also incorporates the facility for veterans’ families to add individual records, stories, valuable diaries and photographs.
