Using the THS Archives – Beginner’s Workshop
The American Theatre Architecture Archive at THS holds a wealth of information on theatre history. While access to the archives is open to all researchers, it can be difficult to know how to begin! “Using the THS Archives – Beginner’s Workshop” is designed to equip THS members with a basic toolkit for archival research. From archival object handling and care to understanding finding aids and using web resources, to tips for discovering the information you need in the sometimes overwhelming collections, participants leaving this workshop will be newly equipped with the skills they need to effectively research at the THS archive, and at many others.
This 90 minute workshop will feature an information session and time for hands on research.
