Remediating the Archive intends to create a platform to stimulate dissemination and collaboration across our four institutions, as well as drawing on existing links with other stakeholders, such a museums, libraries and the creative industries, in order to explore innovative ways in which the ‘remediated archive’ might be used for the greatest benefit.

This will be achieved through a workshop at Cardiff University that will act as the starting point for conversations regarding how we might best pool expertise and resources effectively to promote and augment archival holdings within the digital context.

These networking opportunities will be supported by the development of an online directory of researchers and experts in relevant academic, digital, library and information service fields, complemented by a list of collections held within the GW4 alliance and its partners. It is hoped that this will form the basis for new collaborative research activities and funding applications for projects.
