The MEMSlib editors are pleased to announce that the site has been selected as the winning project in the 2020 Physical Lockdown/Digital Freedom Competition, and would like to extend our thanks to the Digital Culture research and learning group at the University of Kent both for their support and this award.
The competition arose out of a desire to hear, share and celebrate those positive stories of how digital technologies have helped during the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown in the UK. Our submission highlighted the global impact of MEMSlib, which includes members from the UK, Europe, North and South America, and Asia. Submission materials also affirmed our continuing commitment to support our academic community by guiding peers and colleagues to research resources and providing a welcoming forum space.
In announcing the competition result, the Digital Culture team (made up of staff in the Schools of Computing, History, and Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research) shared that our "digital library entry was simply wonderful, and hugely impressed us".
Finally, thanks are due to Dr David Rundle; the directors and administrators of the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies at the University of Kent; and those who have contributed resources and supported us in this MEMSlib community. Thank you!
