UK's National Archive is to Digitise 165 Years Worth of British Telecom's and its Predecessors' Historical Documents

From iTWire:

The project is a collaboration between Coventry University, BT Heritage and The National Archive and aims to catalogue, digitise and develop a searchable online archive of almost half a million photographs, images, documents and correspondence. It is being funded with a grant from JISC (formerly the UK’s Joint Information Systems Committee).
