Sometimes, I like to pretend I’m on the Food Network show Chopped with Ted Allen telling me how pretty and accomplished I am. Also, I sometimes buy groceries for a very specific recipe. So, sometimes my kitchen pantry actually looks like a basket that is featured on Chopped. Sometimes.

We have been shortlisted for the Award for Safeguarding the Digital Legacy, which rewards projects focused on protecting ‘at-risk’ digital objects.
In our case, these objects were the emails of staff at premier poetry publishing house, Carcanet Press, which were languishing on hard drives and local networks at the Carcanet office. Carcanet’s hard copy archive – held at the Library – fills around 1,300 boxes, but the correspondence files have been dwindling in size with the shift to digital communication.
