Welcome to LyDiA, the Lymm Digital Archive
Posted on 4th Nov 2019 by Glynis Allen
Since Lymm Heritage Centre first opened in June 2017, the focus has always been on 'sharing heritage' and in a way that can be enjoyed by everyone. Not just visitors to the Centre but also to the thousands of social media followers around the world.
This initiative takes that 'sharing' to a new level with the launch of LyDiA, the Lymm Digital Archive. This is a key part of the project which the Centre was awarded support early in 2017 by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Using industry leading software PastView from TownsWeb Archiving, this provides a user-friendly interface bringing these fascinating old pictures to life whilst providing the ability to add that all important story. It is also about securing our history for future generations, particularly as so many people have old photographs of historic interest. By lending them to the Centre, high resolution copies can be made and acknowledged before adding to a Collection. This will not only further knowledge but also fill in those all important gaps.
If you have images or documents to share or would like to get involved with the project, please contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you enjoy the site and you can read more in our Warrington Guardian article.
