Volunteers for Liberty: The Archives of the International Brigades
The Spanish Collection is an internationally significant research resource on the Spanish Civil War, International Brigades and Aid Spain Movement which has been accumulated at the Marx Memorial Library for forty years. Thanks to a grant from The National Archives Cataloguing Grants Scheme the MML is currently undertaking a project to catalogue the Spanish Collection. The catalogue will be available via fully searchable item level descriptions on our online catalogue, making it accessible to new generations of researchers.
Thanks to newly acquired material from the International Brigade Memorial Trust and the families of members of the International Brigades the catalogue will include exciting new material which has not been available to researchers before.
This collaborative project with the International Brigade Memorial Trust will also see the creation of an education pack on the Spanish Civil War and International Brigades for school children.
