The BT Digital Archives
- Last Updated on 20 July 2013
The BT Digital Archives was developed through the New Connections project, a one million pound collaboration between Coventry University, BT and The National Archives, in order to bring an important part of this unique archive and innovations story to a much wider audience. It was funded by Jisc under Strand B: Mass Digitisation of their Content programme between November 2011 and July 2013.
The project aimed to catalogue, digitise and develop a searchable online resource of almost half a million photographs, images, documents and correspondence, a core part of the overall collection assembled by BT over 165 years, including over:
- 45,000 photographs and pictures, c1865 - 1982
- 190,000 pages from over 13,500 research reports, 1878 - 1981
- 230,000 documents from over 550 policy and operational files, 1851 – 1983
