Two new descriptions have recently gone live on the DMU Archives page of the Archives Hub.
Russian Space Exploration (reference code RSE) describes the exciting collection of drawings, documents, photographs, ephemeral objects and memorabilia relating to early Russian space exploration. The collection was donated to the Archive by lecturer Andrew Thomas and has recently featured in a Russian space exhibition at DMU’s Heritage Centre.
Special Olympics Leicester (reference code SOL) details a collection donated to the International Centre for Sports History and Culture at DMU and transferred by them to the Archive for safe-keeping. The materials relate to the 2009 Special Olympics which were held in Leicester and includes memorabilia and ephemera, press cuttings, photographs, signed material, action plans, guides, programmes, framed photos, evaluation reports, DVDs, a resource pack, educational CD-ROMs, general rules folders, bid documents and a PR coverage booklet.
Both collections are available to view in the Special Collections reading room in DMU’s Kimberlin Library. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
