More content, more quickly! The BNA tech upgrade – an update
We hope that you have all been enjoying the lovely Summer weather lately?
You may have noticed that there has been a slow-down in the number of pages added to the site recently. There is a fantastic reason for this . . . [drumroll please] . . . We are delighted to announce that we have been busy working on upgrading our newspaper ingest and post-processing system. Once we’re up and running with the new system, this will allow us to bring you more new content, more quickly! A small downside to this is that for the next few weeks while we upgrade, there will be no new pages added to the site.
Please be assured that in this time we have continued to scan newspaper material at an ever increasing rate. The good news is that because of the continuous scanning, we have a rather large number of new titles and additional pages of existing titles waiting ‘in the wings’! We cannot wait to start processing the new scans through the improved system and make them available to you on The BNA.
As always, we love hearing about your discoveries from The Archive. Please do share your stories here or by contacting us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what you’ve found!
