African workers on file. Three digitization projects in Ethiopia and Zambia

News, IISH, Amsterdam - Wed, 2018-12-19 17:15

Stefano Bellucci and Andreas Admasie, our Collection Development staff members for Africa, have been setting up several digitization projects to safeguard and make accessible archives containing rich source material on the history of work, workers and labour relations. In November 2018 we visited projects in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), Dire Dawa (Ethiopia) and Kitwe (Zambia). In each case we are closely cooperating with local universities and societal partners. Jointly, we try to improve the inventorization and the storage conditions before digitizing.
