Database Overview: "The Imperial War Museum's Collections On-line database currently contains over 58,000 records relating to items in the collections. It is not a complete set of records of all the museum's holdings but offers a great deal of information. The present database covers the collections of documents; film and sound in detail. The records for items in these collections will continue to grow. Other collections will be added in 2003/04, but selections of records covering art, exhibits, books, photographs, and the aircraft and vehicles collection are included in the database. These are primarily used to illustrate the nine main themes selected to feature on this site. Each theme contains sub-themes illustrated by selections of material from each of the collections. The records from all the collections can be interrogated and displayed using the 'All Collections' search screen."
