One of the largest collections of original posters from World War I has been stored away in a Greenock museum and only occasionally put on display.
The collection of about 300 posters, from Britain and other allied countries, were compiled by the McLean Museum in Greenock during the conflict and immediately afterwards.
A lottery grant of 51,300 pounds will now allow the Inverclyde Council-run museum to scan the full collection and make it available over the internet, the Scotsman reported.
A collection of local newspapers from the period will also be digitised as part of the project.
The digital collection will be a key part of the Scotland-wide commemorations next year of the centenary of World War I.
