Introduction to archival research

Onsite Workshop

We offer onsite learning workshops for interested groups that want to work with the collections of the IISH.

During this workshop, we give an introduction to the history and mission of the institute. We also explain how our collection is formed and made accessible, and how to use our catalogue. We also show you the best ways to handle and request materials. With these workshops, we aim to deepen understanding of evidence and primary sources and to help develop research skills.
