The Bodleian’s Weston Library has a wealth of resources covering almost all aspects of modern British society and culture. This session will introduce key finding aids and get you started with the research skills needed to make the most of these resources. We will look at identifying relevant material in Oxford and elsewhere; considerations when working with archival material; and types of archives and modern papers. You will have an opportunity in the session to handle some actual examples.
Intended Audience: Students, researchers and other Bodleian Libraries’ readers considering using modern papers and archives in social science or historical research.
