Exploring the Opie Collection

One of the central strands of Playing the Archive is to digitalise the Opie Collection and  create new ways for users to interact with it. The archive is housed at the Bodleian Libraries in Oxford. These two posts from the libraries’ blog discuss the origins of the archive, the challenges of cataloguing its material, and the personal papers of Peter Opie.
