Hi David,
That is really great news. Is there any timescale for when it will be available? And will it be done professionally, or by Society members? Or is it just a sales proposal?

Hopefully all contributors will be aware that since the digital edition was launched in January 2013 we have a constantly growing, immediately available archive of all RO's published since that date. The scanning of earlier issues has not been abandoned but as with most facilities provided by the Society it is dependent on the availability of suitably qualified volunteers with access to appropriate kit.

Dare I suggest that anyone willing to take on such a role show their hand during the RO Q&A session at next weeks AGM.

Digital versions of the RO were produced and made available to the RCTS Yahoo groups (Library and Officers') from September 2008, until they were made available on the website (from c2013) - this was an initiative started by Terry Silcock, and AIUI they came out of the RO production cycle at some stage. (I have a set if no one else has). This was in addition to the CDs of old ROs that he produced.
