Undergraduates as Researchers: Using Original Archives and Historical Sources

Undergraduates as Researchers: Using Original Archives and Historical Sources
Speaker: Peter Keelan, Head of Special Collections and Archives
Series: QUILT Seminar series / Starts: 22 February 2008

This genuinely collaborative project developed modules that were designed to enhance the learning experience of undergraduates via the use of primary research documents. Peter Keelan reported on the original research possibilities that are available to Cardiff University’s students, both within the institution’s Library archives and externally, for interdisciplinary study in history, art, literature, Welsh and wider Humanities and Social Science topics. A handbook on basic archives research was produced, along with an innovative research collections chart that served to raise the profile of Cardiff’s unique research resources.

There was an opportunity to examine at first hand some of the source materials discussed in the session.
