Research in Archives - Online Workshop

Research in Archives - Online Workshop

In this 2-hour workshop we will explore digital collections of original documents. We will discuss the creation, selection, and preservation of archival records, and how you can read, ask questions of, and understand them in context. We will be exploring 19th and 20th Canadian and American history sources, though with advance notice the workshop can be modified to meet other particular interests.  This workshop is for anyone interested in learning more about conducting archival research. (A larger screen, rather than a phone or tablet, is recommended if possible.)

By attending this workshop you will:

  • understand how archival documents are preserved, digitized, and shared with the public;
  • be able to locate digital archival collections relevant to your research;
  • have prcticed reading and discussing original documents.
