Digitisation in Action: Some Exciting Finds from Project Undaunted
Mon 5 June 2017, 14:00 – 15:00 BST
This ambitious digitisation project focuses on a sample of the Ship Plan and Survey Report collection of Lloyd’s Register (LR) which is estimated to exceed 1.25 million documents. A product of ship classification, the archives were created during the survey of ships from 1834 to the late 1960s. This unique collection also contains correspondence, notes, copy certificates and later records that detail the ships’ demise. The project’s title comes from the first ship in the London port box to be surveyed by LR which, very aptly, was named Undaunted. Join Louise Sanger (Lloyd’s Register Foundation) to learn more.
