WHELF Archives and Special Collections colouring book

Black and white line drawing of Aberystwyth Old College - a page from the Colour Our Collections book 

Join us 5-9 February 2018 for a worldwide colouring extravaganza on social media!

Led by the New York Academy of Medicine Library, who first launched the campaign in 2016, libraries, archives, and museums around the world are sharing free colouring sheets based on materials in their collections. Users are invited to download and print the sheets and share their filled-in images on social media, using the hashtag #ColorOurCollections (because the campaign launched in America most institutions are using the American spelling of colour!).

So, for this year the members of the WHELF Archives and Special Collections Group have gotten together to create a colouring book based on the Year of the Sea.

Download the book here [PDF]and let us see your creative skills!

Post images of your coloured pages on social media with the hashtags #lliwioeincasgliadau or #colorourcollections and tag us in @WHELFed.

And don’t forget to check out which other institutions around the world are taking part using the #colorourcollections hashtag or visiting the website of the New York Academy of Medicine

Happy colouring!!
