Stories of Imagination: Exploring Terry Pratchett’s Archive

19 November, 2020, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

This is an online event.

In this workshop you are invited to experiment with digital technology to add knowledge and stories to the fascinating and unique Terry Pratchett Archive, held at Senate House Library. Explore rare letters, books, illustrations, objects and other items from the digitised Pratchett collection while you tag and describe them. You will be adding information using the simple and fun multi-media and knowledge sharing platform Scalar.

It will be led by digital humanities experts Christopher Ohge (Institute of English Studies) and James Cummings (Newcastle University) along with Senate House Library’s Head of Special Collections, Maria Castrillo.
