Archiving at home

We have been awarded a grant by the National Archive’s 2020 Archive Testbed Fund to build the “Archiving @ Home Hub”, a digitally accessible facility to enable people around the country to volunteer remotely to catalogue and transcribe material and enrich our digital offering.

After a fair few Zoom meetings and cups of coffee, we have a prototype up and running.If you’d like to have a go at transcribing some of our material, please get in touch via our contact page. Warning: some handwriting is hard to read!
