What is Archives+?
Archives+ aims to create an archive centre of excellence in the Manchester Central Library, a one-stop resource centre providing a regional, national and international focus for community activities and learning from archive, library and other sources.
Archives+ will offer a wonderful, purpose-built showcase and repository for the region's archive and family history. The Archives+ partnership will build on the appetite and demand for accessible community history and personal heritage. This one-stop-shop will make it easier than ever before to find what you're looking for. The main partners in Archives+ are:
•Greater Manchester County Record Office (Association of Greater Manchester Authorities)
•Manchester Libraries, Information and Archives (Manchester City Council)
•North West Film Archive (Manchester Metropolitan University)
•Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Race Relations Resource Centre & Education Trust (University of Manchester)
•Manchester & Lancashire Family History Society
•Manchester Registration Service (Historic Registers)
Displays and exhibitions will explore the rich collections to tell the stories of Manchester’s people and communities. You'll find all the local and family history resources you're used to, from books, maps and original materials to self-service digitised items and online resources like ancestry.com.
Archives+ will bring history to life using interactive exhibits, sound and vision. Its focus will be on telling stories and helping us to identify with our past. Our history isn't just about the great and the good, it's about personal testimony from ordinary people: a child in the cotton mill, the navvy, the land girl.
Please feel free to comment or tag any of our 10,000+ photographs with information or reminiscences. You'll need a Flickr account to do this.
Look out for Archives+ updates via our Twitter profile, our Facebook page and our blog.
An extensive Local Image Collection is available at www.images.manchester.gov.uk
