Search and Discovery in Archives and Special Collections In-Person / Online

This workshop for researchers includes the opportunity to view rare items from the University Archive & Special Collections.

We will cover:

  • an overview of our collections
  • where you can find records of items in our collections
  • how you can gain information about items awaiting cataloguing
  • access arrangements
  • search tips for items in our collections and wider national collections

The Special Collections Librarian, Nancy Jackson, will be glad to discuss how we might be able to support your research or assist you to incorporate viewings or facsimiles of collection items into your teaching.

Venue is on City Centre Campus - Curzon, Room C103 - with an online option. The slides of the presentation and the collection menu will be share with online participants. However, the in-person visit to the venue (and even handling the rare material in some cases) would give you the opportunity observe and be inspired by the materials closely. We therefore strongly encourage you to book in-person if circumstances allow. If you cannot make it in person after booking, please cancel the in-person booking and register an online booking instead. Places are limited. Only 12 in-person bookings, due to space restriction.
