Digital Library Spotlights
Welcome to The Sparrows' Nest, Nottingham
Please see below for yet another 151 additions to the Digital Library. We have now worked through an enormous collection which also entailed a lot of local Trade Union stuff, so expect to see less of that moving forward. We shall see what surprises the next few boxes hold!
This month we came across the Freedom Press publication Ill-Health, Poverty & the State, half pamphlet, half paperback from 1946, writing on healthcare during the post war, but pre NHS period. Digitising this was a bit of an agonising decision and technically more challenging than most documents, we posted some notes about the process on on our Instagram account.
Apologies for the delayed upload. We were rather busy and much of that work was a lot of unavoidable sorting and cataloguing so scanning materials had to take a bit of a backseat. But there you go, pamphlets, pamphlets and pamphlets, as well as a bunch of newspapers. Dive in!
Thanks to the amazing work of a volunteer, the majority of our Digital Collections can now be accessed through the Internet Archive.
With another list of newly added materials and our new Spotlight on: The Struggle Against The Poll Tax, we were once again spoiled for choice which document to single out this month, with tons of cool posters, leaflets and newspapers to pick from.
