    TIMESCAPES ARCHIVE LAUNCH

    Date: Friday, 16 October 2009
    Time: 4-6pm
    Location: British Library, Rooms 2 and 4

    Directions: http://www.bl.uk/aboutus/quickinfo/loc/stp/index.html

    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
    p.a.m.compton@leeds.ac.uk by Friday 11 September 2009.
