Welcome to the project blog for our WW1 digitization project: ‘Rhyfel Byd 1914-1918 a’r profiad Cymreig / Welsh experience of World War One 1914-1918’. We’ll use this space to post project updates, to introduce our project team and partners, and to provide information about events and outreach.
The project is funded by the JISC e-content programme 2011-13, through the mass digitization strand, and by partner contributions especially from the National Library of Wales, where the project is based. Our partners are: Bangor University; Cardiff University; Aberystwyth University; Swansea University; University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s; The People’s Collection Wales; Archives and Records Council, Wales (ARCW); BBC Cymru Wales.
We will digitize primary sources relating to World War One from the Libraries, Special Collections and Archives of Wales, producing a coherent, consolidated digital collection revealing the often hidden history of World War One as it impacted all aspects of Welsh life, language and culture.
The project started on Feb 1st, 2012, and will be completed by the end of July 2012.
