Library awarded grant for People's Record London Olympics project

The Library has been awarded a further People’s Record grant award. The People’s Record aims to create a collective record of the public’s response to hosting the 2012 Games.


The work will be done jointly with the Centre for Olympic Studies & Research and will produce videos exploring the experiences of Loughborough University students who have volunteered for helping with the London 2012 Olympic Games. These videos will be published on the People’s Record website Videos from two previous Library’s People’s Record projects are already available there. If you would like more information about the project please contact Dr Graham Walton (
