I can hardly believe we have reached the end of the project. I have just uploaded the last of the primary digitised materials (of which we have over 300), and the 58th and final learning resource (Terese has somewhat surpassed her initial estimate of 10 resources per theme!!) to the MyLeicestershire History website.
The learning resources use a variety of formats, ranging from powerpoints and pdfs to Prezi’s and those for mobile applications. We hope that by providing this diversity it will enable people to engage with more of the resources.
The draft final report is almost complete, and will soon be accompanied by a video featuring members of the project team, these will be added to the website in due course. The flyers have been disseminated, and the banner is about to be stowed away, although not for long…….
We will officially launch the collections at a Heritage Day conference organised jointly by Leicestershire Industrial History Society, The David Wilson Library and the
Centre for Urban History, University of Leicester, called Manufacturing: Past, Present and Future, which takes place on the 27th April 2013.
In addition Terese and I will be running two sessions with local library groups (Leicester Central Library and Belgrave Library) in March, and I do not doubt that other opportunities to go out and talk to people will arise in the next few months.
If you are interested in learning more about the project and resources you are welcome to e-mail us email@example.com . Otherwise, enjoy the materials and resources and feel free to make (non-commercial) use of them.
