Next Tuesday (27th November) sees the return of the University of London’s annual History Day. This free one-day event offers researchers an opportunity to meet librarians and archivists from research organisations including universities, heritage organisations and specialist repositories. Last year the Stationers’ Company became the first livery company to participate in the event, and this year we’ll be joined by the Barbers’ Company and the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries.
As well as finding out more about collections across the country, visitors can also attend a programme of talks on research methods and developments. Topics covered in this year’s programme include corporate histories, digital research tools, and using archival research in creative writing.
