People power…

In no time at all, the power of the people to support a worthwhile project is demonstrated by the success of Mark at Archival Access Victoria.  His proposal to raise a moderate funding base to enable the digitisation of court records has reached its target well ahead of the proposed time frame.

Digitisation of historic records serves several purposes, the least of which is enabling a wide range of people access to records that would otherwise be out of reach.  For historians of any sort – family, local, academic, student – access to primary source material can be difficult to obtain.  Archival Access is changing this.  Thank you, Mark.
