*Reminder time – It’s just 2 weeks until our research inspiration evening*
That’s right folks: postpone that trip to the cinema, cancel granny’s birthday party and block off the diary because there’s only one place to be on Wednesday 12th March: Special Collections!
Would you like some ideas for research projects using Special Collections material for you or your students? Or would you even just like a refresher on the wealth of primary resource material available to you for use in teaching and research in Special Collections?
If so, we would like to invite you along to an informal drop in event on Wednesday 12 March 4.30-7 pm in Special Collections on level 12 of the University library. We will have a wide range of books, manuscripts and archival material out for you to look over, ranging in date from the 12th century to modern times. Our aim will be to highlight underused collections, new acquisitions, or just simply those items that we know are crying out for further research.
At 5.30 we will have a special focus on the Hunterian Library, with a round table discussion to explore potential ideas and projects to feed into the upcoming tercentenary of William Hunter’s birth in 2018.
Wine and nibbles will be served. All are welcome and please pass on to any colleagues or students who may be interested.
