Research Adaptation Workshop: Archives & Access

Library shelves with colour filter on top


The Centre for Data, Culture & Society and the Research Office of the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences are running this programme of online workshops focused on adapting approaches to research in the context of ongoing remote and hybrid working. 

These workshops will focus on research areas that have been significantly impacted by social distancing measures. They will bring together colleagues with varying levels of experience in adapting their research so that we can learn from the experience of our community, understand the barriers and explore ways of supporting research adaptation over the medium term. 

This workshop focuses on Archives & Access. 

While lots of collections have been digitised in recent years, many research projects rely on physical access to materials held in libraries, archives, and museums. Some researchers will have found ways to work with librarians and archivists to take their work forward over the last year, others will have had to adapt their research focus and questions. Those who find themselves making use of digital collections may also be exploring new data-led techniques such as a text analysis and visualisation. This workshop will consider the issues in doing archival research via remote and hybrid working.
