Event description
This month we have a special talk from our Ski Club Archivist!

About this Event

Join us at the White Haus in the Pery room for a special evening of insight into the Ski Clubs archive!

This month we have two archivists from the De Montfort University (DMU) Special Collections who will talk about the way in which the Ski Club of Great Britain archive has been preserved and catalogued. The talk will begin with an introduction to the work of DMU, setting the Ski Club collection in the context of sports history academic work and other sports collections held by DMU. Following this introduction there there will be a presentation about the work involved in cataloguing the Ski Club archives, describing the processes of organising and packaging and creating the catalogue entries, illustrated with images of Ski Club treasures.

The talk & presentation will culminate with a practical demonstration of how to search and browse the catalogue online.

The talk will commence at 6.30 pm until 7.30pm. You are welcome to arrive from 6pm to get a drink prior to the talk.

Following the talk we invite you to stay on in the Pery room to have a drink/ food and catch up with fellow members.

As a member you can also receive 10% discount on food & drink when you show your membership card.

We look forward to seeing you there!
