The Feminist Webs archive was packed up by some willing volunteers over the past few weeks and has moved into the new Birley Campus in Hulme (Manchester Metropolitan University), following the closure of the Didsbury Campus.
Janet Batsleer, who oversaw the move, said ‘It’s great isn’t it! We have had the archive in an office for years, and now it is in the new building, in archive shelving, and feels like its more integrated into the University and more accessible for the public.’
The archive is going to be opened up once a week from September by Alison Ronan who said, ‘I hope it will make it easier for anyone who is interested to be able to come and have a look at it, and to start doing more exciting things with it’. Watch this space for more details.
