Maps and Music project gets welcome extension
The retrospective conversion project for the Maps and Music card catalogues has been awarded a no-cost extension by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation which will now see the project run through to the end of July 2014. Lower than anticipated costs in certain areas of the project budget have meant that we can afford to extend the contracts of the existing editorial team for a further year and fund two additional editors’ posts. This should increase the chances of completing the checking and enhancement of the keyed records and enable the quality of the final records to be significantly improved. The Project team are grateful to the Foundation for their support for this change to the original project plan.
