New RCAHMS website beta launched

A beta version of the new Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland website has been released, along with a revamped version of the body's CANMORE database. The following is the announcement from RCAHMS:

Both the RCAHMS website and the Canmore database have been undergoing re-development over recent months and are now ready for release in 'Beta' form. To see a preview of the new development, go to the new website Homepage at:

New Canmore can be accessed from the website from the Search box function at the top of the page, or through the Canmore option in 'Search Our Resources' in the left-hand menu bars.

'Beta' form means that that both the website and Canmore are still undergoing further revision and development, but are at a sufficiently advanced stage for us to open them up to users for testing and comment. We will continue to add content to the website, and will analyse your feedback on both the website and the database, until February 27th 2009.

Please spend some time exploring both, then let our development teams know what you think by going to:

If you do encounter any problems, errors or omissions, or wish to make any specific observations, please let us know in the response boxes provided.

If you would like to be included in the draw for one of these fascinating books, please enter your email address in response to the final survey question.
