DCDC23 History Day

The History Day exhibition provided a unique opportunity to discover history collections from across the UK.

Date: Tuesday 11 July 2023 
Time: 13:00 – 17:00 
Location: History Day was held at the conference venue, Teaching and Learning Centre, Durham University, Durham, DH1 3LS

History Day was created in 2014 to bring history collections closer to researchers of all kinds. After two virtual events at DCDC21 and DCDC22, History Day returned to this year’s conference with its first in-person fair for the DCDC conference.

Collections staff showcased their collections and were available to answer questions and discuss research and ideas for future projects.
