You are cordially invited to attend the launch of the Timescapes
Archive, a new resource of data on personal lives and relationships
through the life course. The event will be opened by Dr. Alan Gillespie
CBE, the new Chair of the ESRC. This will be followed by short
presentations explaining the background and significance of this new
archive, especially for qualitative longitudinal research in the UK.
There will be demonstrations of the key functional features of the
Archive showing how researchers and others can use it to browse and
search for data and supporting materials. In parallel with the launch,
there will be poster presentations by related archives. A drinks
reception will accompany the launch.
We are delighted to announce that, at the halfway point of the
Timescapes Study, the Archive is fully functional and well-populated
with data. Though more data will be added as the projects continue their
work, the Archive already has a broad range of data. All Timescapes
projects are represented as are diverse types of data: interviews,
images, audio, video, and more.
If you are able to join us for this exciting event, we would be grateful
if you could confirm this by email to Pat Compton at email@example.com by Friday 11 September 2009.
