Explore Your Archive week 2016 is nearly upon us! A joint campaign run by the National Archives and the Archives and Records Association, Explore Your Archive runs from 19 – 27 November and aims to promote and encourage the use of local archive services across the UK. For events across the country, why not visit www.exploreyourarchive.org to learn what’s going on near you.
Here at Archives and Collections at the Library of Birmingham, we are having another pop-up exhibition following the great success of last year! This year we are Making an Exhibition out of our Researchers and we have had a great response with items already nominated including a letter from Winston Churchill and a drawing of a Boulton and Watt Engine! There is still time (just about!) to nominate an item and you can download the nomination form here.
So why not come along to our exhibition on Saturday, 19th November in the Wolfson Centre on Level 4. The exhibition will be open 1pm – 4pm and you can find details online on the Library of Birmingham events page.
We will look forward to seeing you!
