+ Presentations from the READ partners now available!

The READ project was launched in January 2016 at the ‘Technology meets Scholarship’ conference at the Hessian State Archives in Marburg (Germany).  This conference was organised by the co:op (community as opportunity – the creative archives’ and users’ network) project.

Slides and presentations from the READ partners are now available at the co:op website (see links below).  Videos of the presentations are also coming soon!

These presentations give a great introduction to the READ partners and the objectives of our project.
