Tate’s Online Archive Project Reaches 3/4m Users

The Tate’s Archives & Access project, a large-scale digitisation and outreach programme funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Tate, has attracted over three-quarters of a million visits from around the world since online publication began in 2014. Over 52,000 pieces from collections in the Tate Archive are now online.

Annotate, the crowd sourcing initiative which invites the public to decipher letters by artists, has so far generated the transcription of over 8,000 documents since launching in September 2015. Tate was the first art gallery to collaborate with Zooniverse, led by the University of Oxford, to undertake such a project. One transcriber translated an unattributed German poem in the archive of Klaus E Hinrichsen, who fled to Britain in the 1930s to escape Nazi persecution, resulting in the poem’s first known publication in English. The Archives & Access project also allows the public to create Albums in which to collate notes and original content which can be shared via Tate’s website, while a film strand, Animating the Archives, comprises a series of shorts which examine the artists, themes, movements and cultural issues found in Tate’s archival resources.
