What will research collections be like in 2121? Digital Preservation and the University Library

The University Library looks after many wonderful and unique collections of manuscripts and archives. These collections may contain correspondence, diaries and notebooks, all of which provide a valuable insight into notable researchers’ experience and approach.  We know that in 2021 much of this work now happens digitally.

You are invited to join Alexis Tindall, Manager Digital Innovation, and Lee Amoroso, University Archivist, in an exploration and discovery of some of the Library’s unique collections. In this presentation we will learn more about how the Library’s historic collections are used in research today, and look forward to think about what our research collections might look like 100 years from now. What changes and new skills are needed to preserve the University’s research legacy and heritage in a digital world?
