Support the Douglas Archives



We hope that you might consider supporting the Douglas Archives.


Our costs are fairly modest at present: hosting and software being the most obvious, which amount to a few hundred pounds each year.  However, our plans to improve the user experience will cost rather more, and depend on finances being available.


We would like to introduce a better content management system, which would allow quicker and easier searching of pages.  We would also like to integrate the database with the historical content in a more meaningful way.


Perhaps more importantly, we wish to improve the content, re-writing the material so that it is more user friendly.


Your contribution would help towards these goals. If you have benefitted from using the Douglas Archives, please click the donate button.
