Methods and sources for historical research

This course aims to equip historical researchers with the skills they will need to find and gain access to all the primary source materials they need for their projects. Over the course of a week (Mon-Fri), participants will learn, through an intensive programme of lectures and visits to repositories in and around London, how to combine online tools and traditional archival search techniques to locate and obtain evidence. Institutions visited will include the British Library, the National Archives and a number of other major national repositories in addition to a wide range of smaller and more specialised archives. The course is primarily aimed at those engaged in research degrees in history or kindred disciplines, but is open to all researchers wishing to expand their skills and knowledge in original source materials.
