Opening Up the Archives: introduction to the Life Lines Project
***These sessions are free but booking is essential as places are limited. To book, please contact the Box Office on 0115 846 7777.*** Do you have World War 1 letters, diaries, photos and other memorabilia in the attic or in boxes under the bed? Would you like to learn how to conserve these documents, share them with the public and find out more about family members who were involved in the war? This series of workshops will show you behind the scenes of the University of Nottingham Manuscripts and Special Collections and the Nottinghamshire Archives and how to document, conserve, research and share your own personal archive. We can also support you in exploring your own WWI family documents, which you are invited to display on the Interaction Station. Life Lines is an archive project which aims to make the Weston Gallery and Manuscripts and Special Collections accessible to a wider audience.
