Vote for the Great War Community Collections

Great War Collections (which now includes the JISC-funded Great War Archive and Europeana 1914-1918) has been entered for the EngageU Award, a European Competition for Best Innovations in University Outreach and Public Engagement.

The public can vote for this project until 19 April.

The Great War Collections started as a JISC-funded project, the Great War Archive, from the University of Oxford, back in 2008, as the sister site to the First World War Poetry Digital Archive.

Since then it expanded to the rest of Europe and has engaged over 2100 members of the public in the UK, Germany and Luxembourg to capture over 30,000 images of personally-owned memorabilia from the First World War.
