We didn’t quite break the internet, but news of YAJ going online caused a storm. In just a day, almost 2,000 people picked up on our Facebook post, 21 shared it with other groups and friends, and we had a lovely message from a medieval artefact researcher whose husband works in conservation:
Thank you very much to everyone involved, for the time taken and generosity to do this… We really appreciate being able to have access to journals like these to help us.
The enthusiasm generated is, I think, good indication that we are on the right track… We are planning more digitisation, and soon.
Meanwhile, another equally exciting announcement is being held back, as I don’t want to steal YAJ’s online thunder. All I can say is, watch this space.
