Abstract

ASPECT provides web-based access to a digital archive of ephemera (leaflets, flyers, postcards and newsletters) produced by political parties and candidates for the 1999 Scottish parliamentary election. This paper describes the background to and initial development of ASPECT, reports on current work to develop a multi-election archive with enhanced user services, and discusses the potential for ASPECT to play an active role in supporting e-democracy in Scotland.
