Welcome to The Sparrows' Nest, Nottingham
As our final Document of the Month for 2018, we have chosen another publication from 1968 (see also the People's Histreh blog regarding the various activities we were involved with to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1968 Revolts). This issue of the first series of Anarchy was until very recently not yet part of our collections, thanks again for the generous donation to fill that gap. Published shortly after the events in Paris, it discusses the involvement of students in the revolts in various parts of the world:
Please see below all the materials we have added recently to the Digital Library. This time we have a number of issues of Anarchy (First Series) and a lot of issues of Black Flag. These will be the last additions we will make in 2018. Thanks again to RedMoleRising for the generous loan of digitising equipment and many thanks to everyone who has donated to and accessed our collections during this busy but exciting year at the Nest!
We will have only one more regular opening day this year: next Wed 28th November, 11am-2pm. During all of December our doors will remain shut before we will open again as normal from Wed 2nd January 2019 (11am-2pm).
Should you want to visit in the meantime, please feel free to get in touch and we will arrange for a visit by appointment. Furthermore, our Digital Library will of course remain open 24/7, so if you want to dive into some fine sources over the holidays, go for it (loads of additions to be announced next week)!
Please be aware that although emails and the phone will be checked during December, response times will be significantly slower as normal.
And here is another stash of documents that have been added to the Digital Library, mostly scanned at the request of artists developing the Nottingham Contemporary's new exhibition Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance. But as always, these are but a few of the countless documents in our collections covering these subjects, many publications have already been uploaded in the past and, much much more is still to be catalogued and scanned!
