Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
www.bmarchives.org - after 5 years of development and hard work we launched our new website this week which incorporates not only our vast collection of historical images that have been online for 10 years but also our 6775 strong map collection and our archives catalogue.
We decided to keep the visual and intuitiv setting of our historical images website, www.bmpix.org, which relaunched our historical images within the International Mission Photography Archives in 2008.
bmarchives.org now incorporates not only the large historical images collections of the Basel Mission Archives and the maps (sketches and plans) but also an electronic version of our finding aids which aims at assisting the researchers by allowing them to begin their archives research at their own desks at home.
Our main aim however is to visualise the interconnections of the various collections harboured at the archives. We included a geo referencing tool which connects the past with the present in a very intuitiv way.
