Exploring archives as physical artefacts


Archival cataloguing, digitisation and research often concentrate on documents’ textual and visual content. But their physical form and appearance also contain valuable clues about who used them, where and how.

In this workshop, speakers will share their experience of enhancing access to, and understanding of, collections by focusing on archives as physical artefacts. Participants have the opportunity to study some documents and consider how they might highlight their physical qualities through cataloguing, imaging or research.
