Abstract

This article charts the importance of corpora of documents held by the Barbados Department of Archives, which will be of huge importance to historians and a variety of other scholars and users, but which can only be rendered so if they can be captured in such a way as to allow full, systematic transcription and data-analysis. This opens up contested ownership, access, intellectual property and copyright issues, here explored through the author's personal experience.
