Join WCIA’s ‘ARCHIVE-ATHON’ challenge (2), a volunteer-led workshop helping to list the Temple Library’s heritage collections for future generations.
About this event
Can you volunteer a few hours of your time, to help document the library collections of Wales’ Temple of Peace & Health? Through volunteer ‘crowdsourcing’ and participation, this series of workshops will aim to produce a complete catalogue listing of the Temple Library’s books and materials by the end of April 2022, so that they can be explored and accessed by students, researchers and peace campaigners into the future.
As well as making a huge contribution to WCIA and to Wales’ Peace Heritage, volunteers will gain digitisation skills, work experience insight into heritage and digital media management, a certificate for their contribution, and a short tour of Wales’ beautiful Temple of Peace. Training and support will be provided through each session, and volunteers of all ages and interests are welcome. No specific digital skills are required, other than confidence with basic computer inputting. We would be grateful if participants could bring your own laptop / tablet if you have one; if not, you can request a WCIA volunteer laptop by submitting a request ticket.
There will be 4 facilitated workshop sessions, all on site at the Temple Library (as cataloguing cannot be done remotely) – each with individual registration and different participant groups. To book more than 1 session, search WCIA’s Eventbrite listings for
