Guide to the EMOHA collections

A major objective of the work of EMOHA has been to collect, preserve, and catalogue existing collections.

These diverse collections, from different corners of the county and city of Leicestershire, form the core collection of the EMOHA. Much of this material is in analogue format - reel-to-reel recordings and cassette tapes - and is held at the Record Office for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland in Wigston. Work is being undertaken to digitise analogue collections. As more and more material is born digital EMOHA is beginning to hold collections from across the wider East Midlands region.
