Cultural heritage archives - Partner with PastView
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. With PastView, we have been able to upload our historical maps, early photographs, newspapers and bulletins onto a platform that ensures each collection is as accessible as the next.
Digitisation & Outreach Co-ordinator
The Royal Photographic Society
Townsweb's approach to the digitisation of over 30,000 pages of varying quality and the care taken with fragile bindings was excellent. The project has opened up the RPS Journal on the PastView platform in a cost-effective way, which has been important as we chose to the make it freely available.

Pompey History Society
The Pompey History Society engaged with TownsWeb to create a multi-media website to curate and display the findings of a Heritage Fund project to tell the story of when Portsmouth Football Club were champions of England in 1949 and 1950. We are delighted with the outcome, which also gives the society a platform to develop future projects.
