CEDAR has completed its project phase and is now live as the Online Theatre Histories Archive at www.otha.org.uk .

OTHA Background: JISC (Joint Information Systems Committee) awarded UEL funding for a project which explores how digital archives are used and can be enhanced. The project has explored how a pre-existing archive, the ELTA – East London Theatre Archive, is used in teaching at three partner institutions, the Institute of Performing Arts Development at UEL and the Royal Holloway College (University of London), the University of Sheffield and the University of Nottingham.

Working with King’s College London’s Centre for E-Research, the project explored ways of enhancing metadata and improving resource discovery for archives, including experimenting with different approaches to user generated content and user tagging.
