Joe Orton Archive- temporary closure

Posted by hpsm1 at Aug 07, 2017 11:10 AM |

Our Joe Orton archive will be closed temporarily between the 14th August and 8th September. This closure is to allow for essential processing and repackaging work to take place on the collection, as part of a wider cataloguing enhancement project. Material from the collection will be unavailable for consultation during this period.

For the past 6 months the project has worked to enhance the existing catalogue and will now enable researchers to search the collection online through our archive catalogue (due to go live beginning of Sept). The final stage of the project will be to improve the packaging to support the long-term preservation of the collection.

The Orton Collection has had heightened use over the past year, particularly due to the marking of various anniversaries celebrating Orton’s plays and in commemoration of his death: https://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/english/research/joe-orton-50-years-on-1

Special Collections services will continue as normal, and access to other archive collections will not be affected. For further information please contact: specialcollections@le.ac.uk

New resource for local historians

Posted by hpsm1 at Aug 03, 2017 01:17 PM |

A new website makes available all the PhD theses completed by students at the Centre for English Local History. The collection comprises 100 theses covering subjects from medieval moats to hunting in Northamptonshire. 

Founded in 1948, the Centre pioneered local history as an academic discipline in Britain. Research students have been central to its activities, and the theses are important research publications in their own right. The Centre and the University Library have worked together to improve access to this collection for anyone interested in local history.

The diversity of themes and places found in the collection reflects the Centre’s mission to undertake research across the regions of England, and to encourage interdisciplinary approaches. Landscape history, a Leicester speciality, is well represented. Many studies are comparative, or use long time frames that break the conventions of periodisation.

It is hoped that more material can be added in the future. Found out more here: https://elhleics.omeka.net/about
