Bodleian iSkills: Archives and modern papers for Social Sciences and History

This session will introduce key finding aids, identify relevant material in Oxford and elsewhere, look at types of archives and modern papers, cover some considerations when working with archival material and get you started with the research skills needed to make the most of these resources. You will have an opportunity in the session to handle some actual examples.
