I spotted the #MuseumWeek the day after the week commenced. I thought it was a great idea and had I known about it in advance I would perhaps have made difference choices.
In October, National Libraries week will commence (8-14th) and I have made a tweak or two. Firstly I am going to run over the whole of October and it will be in a similar vein to the A-Z challenge which took place in April. All posts will be linked in to the topic of surnames and One-Name studies and be relevant to libraries or a specific library, so stay tuned!
Museum Week was a great opportunity to spotlight museums that might have material relevant to those researching a surname. We tend to think of museums as purely visiting opportunities and whilst that is the case and I personally love visiting museums, they generally speaking have websites and in many cases catalogues and indexes you can search, thereby adding value to your One-Name Study or surname project.
By taking part in weeks such as these we add to the publicity of the various organisations and add other and extended dimensions to our own research projects.
I look forward to taking part in future years and will do a bit more preparation.
