UCLDH Guest Speaker: Lorna Hughes, "Cymru1914.org: Building a new digital archive on the Welsh Experience of the First World War” 

Publication date: Apr 24, 2014 4:19:57 PM

Start: May 12, 2014 5:30:00 PM

Rhyfel Byd 1914-1918 a’r profiad Cymreig / Welsh experience of the First World War 1914-1918 (www.cymru1914.org) is a mass digital archive of the primary sources relating to the First World War in Wales. It was funded by the UK’s Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) from February 2012-October 2013. The project has digitized archives, manuscripts, photographs, art works, and oral histories held by the archives and special collections of Wales to create a coherent, consolidated digital collection revealing the often hidden history of the impact of the War: an invaluable resource for teaching, research, and public engagement that is available to support many aspects of the commemoration of the centenaries of the First World War. 

This presentation will discuss the development of this digital resource, and in particular, it will highlight ways that considerations of end-use and impact were built into project planning. This includes selection of content, interface development, community engagement, and planning for long-term sustainability of the finished digital resource.

Professor Lorna Hughes, University of Wales Chair in Digital Collections, National Library of Wales.

All welcome, drinks and nibbles will be provided after the talk. Please note that registration is required.
