"PastView has allowed us to publish our collections online in a user-friendly way. Users can browse or perform a keyword search. PastView has also enabled us to improve access to our collections, such as our council minutes, making use of Optical Character Recognition (OCR). We can now display the whole breadth of our collections; including documents, photographs, engineering drawings and objects. "
