Projects per year
Using the Encoded Archival Context (EAC) standard short biographies were created of individuals mentioned in his field and transcription notebooks, whether they were his direct informants, people from whom his informants had learned their traditions or who were mentioned to him. Using the University of Edinburgh Archives' Authorities Database, a unique reference number is assigned to an individual, the sources used to identify the individual listed, a short biography of the life of the individual is given and biographies of family members linked. There are currently 175 biographies although the database is continually being added to. The system can be adapted to incorporate organisations and families. All members of the team worked on the biographies although much of the work was carried out by volunteers.
