The Welsh experience of WW1 to be digitised

Sourced from Wales Higher Education Libraries Forum*:

A project led by the National Library of Wales has received funds to digitise primary sources relating to World War One.

The project will make available a unique collection revealing the hidden history of World War One as it affected all aspects of Welsh life, language and culture, taking in printed and manuscript sources as well as moving image, audio and photographic material. It starts work this month and is due to go online in June 2013.

NLW is working in partnership with the libraries, special collections, and archives of Wales, and will  get half a million pounds from the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC). The People’s Collection Wales will gather content generated by communities and local and family historians.

* Nice to see WHELF is using the same WordPress theme (web design) as Cutlock & Co.
