Spread the word far and wide- the East Riding Blockdown project catalogue is now available for browsing!
Written and built creations contributed in February 2022 are now searchable on our Archives Online Catalogue under the collections reference ERBP.
What is the catalogue? Our archive catalogue can help you search what documents we hold in our collections, and will give you a unique catalogue reference (called a Finding Number) so the document can be ordered up and looked at in our Research Room or via other means. The East Riding Blockdown catalogue allows you to search the project’s contributions and order a copy to look at- the aim is that people will still be able to do this in 100 years time!
Huge thanks go to our Archive Assistant, Olivia, who has meticulously catalogued each and every magnificent Minecraft creation received so far. Archive catalogues are hierarchical, and so the ERBP catalogue is arranged firstly by method of deposit (e.g via the online server, private game, Archiverse Minecraft event, school workshop etc), and then by project participant.
This is a major milestone for the project in terms of making youth experiences of the pandemic permanently accessible for future generations. Don’t worry- all the creations are stored in our secure archive repositories, safe from Creepers and other destructible mobs!
We will continue to add creations to the archive catalogue as we receive them, and you can find out how to take part on our ‘Be Involved‘ webpage. Happy crafting!
