Observing the 1980s: lead by the University of Sussex in partnership with the British Library Sound Archive
Kirby, F J
The Observing the 1980s project has successfully brought together voices from the Mass Observation Project and British Library Sound Archive oral history collections as well as ephemera from the University of Sussex Library to create a valuable open educational resource. For the first time correspondence from the Mass Observation Project has been digitised and made available openly online and British Library audio files made available under a Creative Commons licence. In addition a teaching module which draws on these resources and links them to others, is freely available for use and/or repurposing by other teachers, researchers or students.
