welsh-ballads-2.jpgThe Welsh Ballads Digitisation Project, funded as part of the Enriching Digital Resources Programme will be holding a one-day Open Seminar, for academics, students and members of the public.  The seminar will be  featuring a range of speakers on issues relating to ballads and digitisation.

The seminar is taking place on Monday 14th Spetember, from  10am – 4pm at Cardiff University, Arts and Social Studies Library, Corbett Road.

In addition to promoting the current project and exploring possible future developments, one aspect of the seminar was to place the Welsh ballads digitisation project in the context of other ballad digitisation projects, notably those carried out by the National Library of Scotland and the Bodleian Library at Oxford University. In that respect this Welsh digitisation project may be regarded as one which completes a network of British ballad digitisation projects.
