Learning in the Archives

We are keen to offer practical support for learning and teaching. Sessions can be requested by any module or course tutor, and can be incorporated into teaching slots within taught modules at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Sessions are delivered in our Reading Room, and can include a behind-the-scenes tour which allows students an opportunity to familiarise themselves with the building and its facilities. 

We are keen to introduce the value of archives to lecturers and students across many disciplines. In the past we have run sessions for English, History, Audiology, Social Policy and Childhood Studies. If you are a module tutor who would like to speak to us about developing a session, please do get in touch!
