The aim of the BOOC, ‘Paper Trails’, is to create a REF-able multi-, inter- and pluridisciplinary open access, open education resource. It will bring together a diverse group of people – researchers, practitioners and students –and historical collections (print, object and digital) held in the UCL libraries and museums as well as those held externally. 
The project aims to enable collaboration between unlikely partners to help break down barriers that currently exist in academia and to open up the world of historical research. It will reveal how the work and methodologies of researchers, academics, education practitioners and students interrelates, providing opportunity for collaborations beyond the usual parameters these fields present. In doing so, it will forge links with communities of learners within UCL and externally and make an original contribution to knowledge.

Andrew W.M. Smith is a historian of the French and Francophone world. His work focuses on concepts of centre and periphery, analysing various contexts in which this relationship has shaped developments within and beyond the structures of the modern state. Smith is currently Teaching Fellow at UCL and the Secretary of the Society for the Study of French History.
