Using Special Collections & Archives for Research

Old bookspace

As part of Dissertation Week in the Library, Special Collections are running a session on how to use the resources in your research and what help is available from Library staff.


Special collections and archives contain a wealth of information for research and inspiration. Use of primary sources will make your research stand out, but archives can sometimes be daunting. In this session we’ll answer the questions:

* What are ‘archives’ and ‘special collections’?

* How can they be used in my research?

* How do I get started?

* What collections are available in London and how do I access them?

This introductory session is open to all. You will have a chance to handle collection objects and ask questions.

See you there!
