Archive Research Training and Practical for ‘Cold War In The Brecks’

Venue: The Archive Centre, Martineau Lane, Norwich, NR1 2DQ.  Click here for how to find it.

Cost: Free to BrecSoc members and non-members alike; everyone welcome.

This is the next event in our Lottery-funded Cold War In The Brecks project, and is open to members and non-members alike.  If you plan to take part in the project, we particularly encourage you to attend if you can.

There is free parking available at County Hall for Archive Centre users. All visitors must report to the security kiosk at the car park entrance to obtain a visitor’s parking pass.

Please arrive at the NRO reception by 10am, where the Project Manager Peter Goulding will meet you. The group will then be given an overview by one of the archivists of how to use the search room, how to find the relevant Cold War resources available and how to use them for your research. It is also an opportunity for you to meet other project volunteers and to decide which area of research you would like to focus on. Peter will help determine how the research topics will best be covered, given your individual interests and experience. Follow-up research visits can be undertaken at your own pace.

You are welcome to stay on after the group visit to use the search room if you wish. A common room is provided with a snacks and hot drinks machine for people to have a break. In addition, members of the public can use the restaurant and shop at County Hall. There is disabled access in all areas. Lockers are available.

If you are intending on coming on this visit, it would be helpful if you could confirm attendance in advance by email to teresa@teresasquires.plus.com  If you are unable to come on this visit, you are still able to make your own arrangements for research at NRO. Please ensure that you inform us by way of the email above so that the project manager can contact you individually.
