Digitising the Mass Observation Project
- Published: Monday, 26 November 2018 10:29
Did you write for the Mass Observation project in the period 1980-1989? As part of the further development of the Mass Observation project, the Mass Observation team are collaborating with their historic publishing partner Adam Matthew Digital to digitise and further engage with the academic community. We’re hoping to get in contact with all Mass Observers who contributed to the project in the time period 1980 – 1989 to discuss this exciting project and what it’ll mean for research and academia in the future.
Adam Matthew Digital has a twenty-eight-year history working with libraries and archives to make archival material available on a digital platform and international stage. Their previous work with us resulted in the fascinating and extensive Mass Observation Online, which made available the papers and material from the early Mass Observation Archive dating from 1937 to the mid-1950s to academics, researchers and students at libraries, universities and archives all over the world. This collection is viewed as an essential insight into the social history of Britain in the 20th century and the continuation of this digital collection will further enhance research and teaching for modern audiences.
