Explore Archives week is a national event to showcase and promote archives. Here in Special Collections we have a number of archival collections and we’d love to invite you to visit during our Explore Archives Week open afternoon and find out more about how you can use them. You’ll find us on Level 3 of the library, accessed by the main staircase/lift.
Monday 20th November 1 – 4 pm
We’ll have collections out themed around various subject areas. There will be collection items out on display for you to see and handle, plus plenty of opportunities to ask questions and find out more.
Come and discover more about our literature collections and how our collections have been used in creative writing. You can get a flavour of the collections on our Special Collections English guide. You can find out more about how these collections have been used by other students and academics in these blog posts: Writing back and Teaching from the archives.
Drop in to discover which Special Collections you might find useful for your assignments or dissertation. You’ll find more information in our Special Collections guides for History and Women’s history.
All very welcome.
