REGISTER  —  LEARN MORE ABOUT HISTORY DAY

History Day was created in 2014 to bring history collections closer to researchers of all kinds. After a successful first set of events at DCDC21 History Day returns to this year’s conference with a new and expanded programme.

Come along to the History Day exhibition area, where you can discover history collections from across the UK. Collections staff will showcase their collections on the virtual stands and be available to answer your questions and discuss your research or ideas for future projects. Throughout the fair, there will be a series of pop-up talks to help you discover new collections and projects to get involved in.  

The participating organisations will be announced shortly. 

The call for contributions for organisations is running until 3 June 2022. If you want to join the fair representing your organisation, sign up here.

Students, academics, independent researchers and information professionals are all welcome.
