Read Graham Stinnett‘s recent blog post on an assignment for Global Affairs/UNESCO and the University of Connecticut Libraries‘ Archives & Special Collections. His goal was to assess “the viability of reengaging the partnership with the ANC and UFH” and “to discuss the future of the digital archives project.” Is there a chance that the African National Congress archives will become a digital online resource? This may have been a part of the discussions.
The post goes on to note, “The initial archives project was funded by the Mellon Foundation to organize, describe and make accessible the ANC archives documenting its activities while in exile under Apartheid. These archives, located at the National Heritage and Cultural Studies Center (NAHECS) University of Fort Hare (UFH) in Alice, Eastern Cape, have been available in their reading room for public research since 2005.”
