Studying Lifestyles: Resources Past, Present and Future
Date: 9 March 2009
Location: British Library Conference Centre, London
This day seminar, held at the British Library on 9 March 2009 as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, aims to raise awareness of using existing UK-based resources in dissertations and research projects. The day brings together four key UK resources, which are typically not the first port of call for students and young researchers: the Economic and Social Data Service (ESDS), the British Library (BL), The National Archives (TNA) and the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
The day takes the form of showcasing key resources for studying aspects of lifestyle held by the four organisations followed by a 'How I did it' style presentation of an engaging use case.The final session is an interactive panel session where students can ask the panel specific questions about their own work.
This event builds on separate training days already held at the British Library and ESDS and utilises knowledge transfer to encourage broader consideration of existing sources held in some of the UK's most venerable institutions.
The day is aimed specifically at new and student researchers who are interested in this field of study. The day will end with a guided tour of the British Library.
The meeting is free to attend, but places are limited so booking is essential. State your reasons for attending on the booking form, so that your booking may be confirmed. Lunch is provided.
