The National Art Library in London possesses a collection known as the Robinson Reports that is inaccessible to scholars and difficult to read and search. To address these problems, Professor Lee Fontanella of WPI will be transcribing the reports. The goal of this project was to develop aids for his work and to facilitate the development of an electronic search system for the transcriptions. We developed an editing environment to store the transcriptions in a non-proprietary format and a means of tagging information in the reports for subsequent searching. We also prepared a user manual for the transcription process and documented our recommendations for the development of the electronic search system.
