Archives give you evidence; many are old, some are new; they are unique; they cover every subject; they come in different forms; only certain places hold them; and they can be useful to any researcher. These workshops will enable you to locate primary material relevant to your area of research and to use it critically and ethically in accordance with academic norms. The sessions are open to students and researchers in all disciplines.
- Accessing Archives (UK and Wales) - available through the medium of English or Welsh
- Accessing Specialist Archival Resources (e.g. Audio/Visual)
- Visit to Glamorgan Record Office
Through attendance, you will:
- know what types of information archives contain
- identify locations of archives on a research topic
- be aware of issues relating to the access of those archives
- be aware of different systems of classification
- use archives responsibly and ethically
- cite references to manuscripts correctly
A tour of the Conservation Studio and its related areas will be included to demonstrate the work involved in preserving the Collection.
