LTG Research projects
18. Europeana 1914-1918
This is an online community collection relating to the material culture and general ephemera from the First World War. The project builds on the pilot work of The Great War Archive (a pilot initiative of the First World War Poetry Digital Archive) and RunCoCo, both JISC-funded.
Supported by the Europeana Foundation, the team from OUCS LTG is working with partners from national libraries and institutions around Europe to collect memorabilia and stories from the period of the Great War (1914-1918). Items are contribued either online via the Europeana 1914-1918 website or at family history roadshow events. Such events have been held in Germany, Luxembourg, Ireland, Slovenia, Denmark and the UK, and more are being planned.
