Do you, or would you like to use special and archival collections in your research? Are you unsure where to start? This workshop, Where to Start? An Introduction to Using Special Collections for Research, is designed to offer doctoral candidates an introduction to using special collections (including rare books, archival and other print materials) for their research.


It will take place on Thu, 24 November 2022, 10:00 – 12:30 and focus on the ‘nuts and bolts’ of this: from identifying collections, navigating catalogues, and good research habits (such as effective note taking, organising photos, and citation practices), to handling rare books, prints and archives. The workshop will also offer an opportunity to learn more about the UCD Cultural Heritage collections and how they might support research and learning.
