A new, freely available resource has now been published – the Atlas of hillforts of Britain and Ireland. This resource maps all 4,147 hillforts for the first time. The project to produce this award-winning resource which was created by a huge team of volunteer ‘citizen scientists’ was partly led by Professor Gary Lock, well known to OUDCE.
For background information about the project, see the OUDCE website
This year is the bicentenary of the death of Jane Austen.
To mark the occasion, the Continuing Education has a book display in the entrance area of the Library. You can also find a trail of Jane Austen quotations around the Library!
The Library has published an online guide to resources by and about Jane Austen, which also highlights events taking place around the country. One event not to be missed is the Which Jane Austen? exhibition at the Weston Library until the end of October
