This research project will take the form of a case-study, exploring the task of bringing Special Collections from a local archive to a broader public attention, using digital tools and methods. The purpose of this research inquiry is to make a thorough investigation into the system and method of researching local archive materials, using digital methods and tools to present those findings. Harrington digitised a selection of the Richard Dowden Papers (Collection Reference U140), a fully classified collection of archive fonds held by Cork City and County Archives Service and has crafted a fascinating exhibition exploring Dowden’s life and work.

@helenbeetham: ⅓ of jobs in any given environment / sector can be automated. Will digital skills help? Probably not! #uccdh #DARIAHie
Common words throughout today's #DARIAHie #uccdh conference: revolution AND surviving OR survival. All may have negative connotations but should be viewed as reflective of a challenging process.
