Alan Turing letters discovered!
Newly discovered Alan Turing letters have recently been in the news. They were found in a filing cabinet, and were were sorted and catalogued by the University of Manchester archivist James Peters. They are now available to search online on the Archives Hub: https://archiveshub.jisc.ac.uk/data/gb133-tur/add
“This is a truly unique find. Archive material relating to Turing is extremely scarce, so having some of his academic correspondence is a welcome and important addition to our collection." (James Peters, University of Manchester). The media attention has also meant a huge boost in traffic to the Archives Hub!
We now include descriptions of 'Online Resources', which are web resources that give access to digital content and may also describe physical content. They are typically resources created as the result of a digitisation project. Take a look at our online resource descriptions, or read more about how to create online resources.
Archives Portal Europe
The Archives Hub provides descriptions directly to the Archives Portal Europe (APE). We have set up harvesting, so all descriptions go through to APE automatically.
