On 18 September the University of Dundee Archive Services will take part in Doors Open day by giving two guided tours of the repository at 10am and 11am. Visitors will have a rare opportunity to see behind the scenes and be shown the archive storage areas. In addition a selection of interesting archival items will be on display, including a case book from a lunatic asylum, an admissions book from Dundee Royal Infirmary, a First World War prisoner-of-war journal, a scrapbook from Queen’s College Dundee, photographs of jute mills and workers and many other examples from the University’s collections that provide a glimpse into the past of Dundee and Tayside.
The number of places is limited so booking is essential. To book a place on one of the tours please phone 01382 384095 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please leave a contact telephone number or email address so we can let you know if there are any last minute changes to the programme.
Doors Open Days in Dundee is coordinated by the Scottish Civic Trust, with the support of the University of Dundee. The full programme for all the events taking place around Dundee is available here.
