I am delighted that GLAM has set up this blog. The rich content and existing name recognition typical of literary archives means they lend themselves particularly well to outreach via social media.
A recent project by Special Collections at Bradford University shows what can be done with minimal resources (apart from staff expertise!) and avoiding copyright issues. In Priestley’s Finest Hour, I discussed week by week, as they happened, J.B. Priestley’s famous Postscript broadcasts, made between June and October 1940, from Dunkirk to the Blitz. I reflected on what I had learned from the project in this post on Collections in a Cold Climate, my professional blog.
