Archives can be a rich source of documentary evidence for humanities research, but you can easily be swamped by the amount and diversity of material available. This workshop shows you how to approach archives and their various categories, organising principles, finding aids, and procedures. Through this session you will get advice on how to find original sources, how to conceptualise them, and how to use them in your HDR research.
