In 2017 the Institute for Name Studies at the University of Nottingham began a project to add to the collection of historic place-names recorded for the county of Staffordshire. Researchers in place-names had been moving towards digital recording, which led the University of Nottingham to commission Exegesis to build a website where volunteers and specialists can record place-names. These place-names can then be searched and viewed by the public in list-form and on a map.
Volunteers, led by place-name specialists, continue to enter data into the Staffordshire place-names website.
