Preliminary ResultsBy Patricia A. McClung
Burney Collection Microfilm Digitisation: British Library
Still in progress, this project is scanning 1500 reels of microfilm from the Burney collection of 18th-century newspapers and broadsheets covering the French Revolution. Thus far, staff have scanned the years 1789-93. Once the scanning is complete, the text will also pass through OCR and an indexing stage.
