Lasting Remembrance: Newfoundland, Labrador and War

(posted Oct. 23, 2015)

Members of the project team developing Memorial Libraries first digital humanities project, Lasting Remembrance: Newfoundland, Labrador and War, are travelling to all campuses to host talks and workshops and promote the portal as a teaching and research tool, and will be visiting Grenfell from October 26th to the 28th.

They hope to encourage the participation of communities in and around Corner Brook, so that the experiences of these regions are included in this resource. They plan to digitize research materials and artefacts that are volunteered, as well as local points of commemoration, in an effort to become truly representative of the province's WWI experience. They plan to present the resource as an additional way for scholars to disseminate their research related to the province and this time period, and to offer students a glimpse at research possibilities.

Kathryn Rose, Humanities Research Liaison Librarian for History; David Mercer, Library Assistant, Map Room; and project staff member, Daniel Reid, will be available to speak with anyone doing research related to the WWI time period, having suggestions for materials or artefacts for digitization, or interested in the project:
