Aberdeen Special Collections stated policy is that self-photography of resources is at the discretion of the Reading Room Manager, and her staff. They do allow self-photography using digital, flash-less cameras as a general principle, which will however be subject to case-by case assessment.
As part of a longer legacy from George MacDonald’s Scotland we are encouraging delegates to share photos from any pertinent archival research to assist us in building a global resource of archival holdings of primary George MacDonald material.
We will be encouraging researchers to author blogs of their experience of researching in the archives. More detailed information on the digital aspect of the conference will be circulated closer to the time.
This project will be launching as part of the special collections workshops being run on Wednesday the 19th.
