Citizenship with WEA Scotland & NLS, (Video 5 of 6) Benefits, Innovating With Open Knowledge
From Morna Simpson on August 29th, 2017
This case study features Nicholas Williams at WEA Scotland who works on the project "Legacies of Resistance to the First World War", and Fiona Laing from the National Library of Scotland (NLS).
This case study explores the use of open resources to piece together personal histories of conscientious objectors to the First World War. It will be of interest to people who are interested in how to search for and find useful information for social histories, public engagement or citizenship.
This video (5 of 6) discusses the benefits of using and sharing open resources to preserve social histories, and how you can share your findings with a wider audience through the NLS. NLS has a number of aggregated resources that include some material and open research produced by the University of Edinburgh.
There is a transcript and Activity Sheet to accompany this video.
