Making an Exhibition out of our Researchers




We are thinking ahead this year to the 2016 Explore Your Archive Campaign in November. It’s a little early but you will soon understand why…

Last year we showcased some of our favourite things from Archives & Collections and this year we would love for you all to get involved by telling us what your favourite item is!


This can be an archive document, a map, a book from the Birmingham Collection – absolutely anything from Archives & Collections! All we ask is that you tell us what it is (reference numbers would be fantastic) and why it’s your favourite item.

Should we be inundated, we may need to be a little selective, but we are planning another pop-up exhibition on Saturday, 19th November (1pm – 4pm) with your suggestions being the star of the show.

Please e-mail us with your chosen item(s) (you can have more than one!)  at and please put Explore Your Archive 2016 in the subject field. Alternatively, you can download a form here and e-mail it back to us.

We will look forward to hearing from you!
