Digital Library Spotlights
Welcome to The Sparrows' Nest, Nottingham
Although January is not over yet, we have been rather busy digitising new materials, and - given that the rest of the month is going to be filled with less fun tasks - we wanted you to have access to them as soon as possible. As usual there is a smattering of asssorted materials, but this time we have also added then a lot of previously unscanned issues of Freedom (for lots of other Volumes of Freedom please also the Freedom Newspaper Archive). In total we have added 110 issues (or 1,821 pages!) of Freedom from the mid to late 1970s and mid 1980s. Dive in!
Please see below the list of documents added to our Digital Library in December. Once more many thanks to everyone who supported our endeavours this year, not least by making so many excellent sources available to us. Some of the materials listed below were digitised by request, please keep in mind that we are always very happy to be user led in our digitisation efforts, so please do not hesitate to get in touch!
This month we are travelling a bit further back than usual: Half a century ago, Solidarity published yet another volume in their pamphlet series spanning from the 1960s to the 1970s, this one about a strike at the GM plants in Flint, Michigan, back in the 1936-7.
Here we are again! Apologies for the delay since we last added a stash of materials to the Digital Library. We have been super busy, but were finally able to spent a few blissful days processing documents.
Following another generous donation of awesome materials, we have now been able to close a lot of the gaps in our collection of the very interesting Forest Fields Peace Group Newsletter. Another highlight this time is a full set (always a great feeling to be able to type those words!) of If you don't..., a local magazine from the 1970s. These are interesting and very significant sources for all sorts of reasons, for instance as they provide information from the early days of Mushroom Bookshop. And finally for all those wanting more music Fanzines, there are quite a few additions to what we already have listed below (if you want to browse this kind of stuff, the easiest way is to search our Digital Library for MUSIC).
