        Subject: Call for history of science archives for digitisation

Dear All,

Jisc, in partnership with Wiley, are looking for UK university libraries
and archives with collections on the history of science in Great Britain
that they would like to digitise, at no cost to the holding institutions.

The contributions will be part of a new major digital collection on the
history of science, which will complement material from the archives of
the British Association for the Advancement of Science (BAAS) and
contribute to the creation of a new one million pages digital collection
on the history of science.

Importantly, the new collection will test a new collaborative approach
for the creation of a new history of science digital collection. The
collection will support research, teaching and learning and will be
freely accessible in perpetuity to all Jisc members without any access
or platform charges. Once licences to the content have expired, the
collection will be made available openly and
authentication/password-free globally from the Wiley platform.

For more information see:
The deadline for the submission of Expressions of Interest is Friday 8
November 2019.

Please do share among your networks, and in particular with your
institutions libraries and archive teams. If you have any questions
about the digitisation project please contact: Paola Marchionni

Kind Regards,

History of Science Section Recorder - British Science Association


Kind Regards,
Dr Alexander Hall
