Research in Archives - In-Person Workshop

Research in Archives - In-Person Workshop

In this 2-hour workshop we will explore collections of original documents in person. 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 early 20th century business documents at the Lakehead University Archives, though with advance notice the workshop can be modified to meet other particular interests. This workshop is for anyone interested in learning more about archival research. 

By attending this workshop you will: 
- understand how archival documents are selected, preserved, and made available to the public; 
- have handled, read, and discussed original documents among a small group; 
- be prepared to embark on hands-on research in archives and other repositories around the world.
