Yvonne McEwen in Imperial War Museum link

Yvonne McEwen, Honorary Fellow and Director of 'Edinburgh's/Scotland's War' World War 1 Public Engagement Project, has been invited to join the Academic Advisory Group of the Imperial War Museum.

The Board will advise the Museum on information gathered through crowd-sourcing techniques. The Group's purpose is to offer the IWM advice on how the information gathered might be useful for academic research.

The 'Edinburgh's War' project has been engaging with the public for the past two years. The success of the University project has been highlighted in several national newspapers and radio broadcasts.
