A JISC-funded pilot project aimed at investigating the usage of Linked Data technology in order to join up a digital collection of ship’s logs from 1914-1918, with the Royal Navy Service Records in The National Archives.

These records have great value to the social and military history community as they include detailed information about the movement of ships, and about ship’s personnel. They have even greater value if linked to records and source materials from other collections, such as the Royal Navy Service Records in The National Archives. Linking the Service Records to the Logbooks will, effectively, ‘put sailors back in their ships’.
