Event Details

The Bodleian Libraries are organising an editathon focusing on the Queen Victoria's Journals online resource (www.queenvictoriasjournals.org), to be hosted at Radcliffe Science Library (Bodleian Libraries), Oxford, on Friday 24 May 2013. The day will include a short talk and a tour through the online resource from the Queen Victoria's Journals project staff as well as a visit to the Bodleian Library's current exhibition, Magical Books. Please do sign up now and keep the date free if you're interested!

The plan is to improve the coverage of individuals and events mentioned by Queen Victoria in her diaries and journals. The journals have been transcribed and digitised; they are available online by subscription and will be made available for free global use for a limited time to coincide with the anniversary of Queen Victoria's birthday on 24 May. The project staff have created a list of people as well as a timeline of events mentioned in Queen Victoria's journals.

If you cannot attend the Oxford event, virtual participation is very welcome! Please do get in touch if you have any questions that may need answering in advance.

We are committed to the ideal of a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge, and believe that here in the UK, we can play a unique and important role in realising that vision.
