The Mapping Crime project sought to enhance crime material available via the online digital resource The John Johnson Collection: an Archive of Printed Ephemera through the creation of direct links to related material in a number of external online resources, thereby enabling those studying crime history in particular, and social history in general, to more easily explore themes and narratives by building connections between different sources. This paper describes the context of the project and its outcomes, before exploring aspects of the project methodology, particularly with regard to its manual approach to gathering information and establishing links. It then considers the potential for future developments.
