Does your collection include “treasures, oddities, and curiosities”?

Media coverage is always a good way of raising the profile of (digital) collections. If your university’s collection includes “treasures, oddities and curiosities”, the Times Higher Education would like to know about it for a new series they’re running entitled “Odds and Quads“.

Last week, the magazine reveiwed the Knitting Collection based at the University of Southampton, which had been part of a recent JISC-funded project, Lookk Here!
