Welcome to PATHS
Welcome to Paths
Welcome to the PATHS system for exploring digital cultural heritage collections. This PATHS system contains approximately 50,000 items drawn from the National Fairground Archive at the University of Sheffield Library. It has photographic material from around the United Kingdom from over 100 years of fairgrounds and amusements - people, places, artworks, and transport. It also contains a wide variety of paths that take you on guided tours through the collection. We aim to make it easy for people to explore cultural heritage collections by taking them along a pathway created by experts, by themselves or by other people.
To get started you can follow a path, or explore using the Thesaurus, Tags or Map. You can also search for individual items in the collection or paths of items. Once you find items or are interested in you can store them in your Workspace and view then later or turn them into your own path!
