First World War: Oxford’s digital resources and channels

first-world-war-poetry-digital-archive_0For over 20 years the University of Oxford has made freely available online archives and resources for those studying and researching the First World War.  Now in the heart of the centenary, these provide rich and varied materials for use in displays, learning resources and publications.

Academic IT Services is supporting the University in its centenary commemorations and celebrations through co-ordinating a series of digital initiatives. Oxford at War is new website which brings together material related to Oxford during the period of the First World War. Anyone can share their stories and material through the site, or explore the collection for free. Researchers can publish new perspectives and areas of research in our open access blog or make talks and lectures available through our podcast channels. Materials designed specifically for schools can be made available through Oxford on TES Connect. On the afternoon of Tuesday 10th November we are hosting a First World War Wikipedia edit-a-thon.
