The Conan Doyle Collection needs volunteers

I’ve come across this news item from BBC South, advertising for volunteers at Portsmouth’s Conan Doyle Collection.

Portsmouth City Council has recently been awarded £90,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver Sharing Sherlock, The Story of a Pompey Lad. They have over 40,000 items which need indexing and bringing to the public.

“The more you find out about Conan Doyle, the more you find out there is to learn. He’s this endless person who has many layers to him.”

The Conan Doyle Collection was bequeathed to Portsmouth City Council in 2004 by Richard Lancelyn Green, a leading expert on Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes (who himself died in mysterious circumstances).
