      Scholar Talk: Daily & intimate records of World War I

      Scholar Talk: Daily & intimate records of World War I  With Elise Edmonds For the past 5 years the Library has been digitising, exhibiting and promoting its First World War collections as part of the centenary of the Great War. Central to the Library’s collection are the personal diaries written by men and women who served. This collection was added to the UNESCO Australian Memory of the World register in 2015. In this talk, Elise will discuss the First World War collections held by the Library, how these heritage collections have been interrogated and interpreted over the centenary period and will highlight some of the stories from the exhibition, Kiss the Children; the Library’s final exhibition in the centenary period.
