From the newspaper archives…

Scanning of the Welsh Newspapers from 1914-18 is now complete, and one of the items we have uncovered is this story, from The Llangollen Advertiser, 7th June 1918. In a report on the half-yearly meeting of the Governors of the National Library of Wales, there is mention of “the collection now being made of all records connected with the war so far as Wales was concerned.” The meeting also mentions purchase of “a new photography apparatus” to allow photographs of manuscripts to be taken – so #cymruWW1 follows a long tradition of NLW using new technology for education, research and outreach!
