The Dickens House Museum sponsored this project with the aim of digitising and cataloguing its large photography collection. Constant use by researchers was causing deterioration of the archive's images. After our research, data collection, and analysis, we provided options for creating a database to meet its needs. The completed IQP includes: a database system cataloguing the collection with a sampling of six hundred images digitised; an administrative manual to assist with future upgrades; and a user manual for Dickens researchers.
