This wiki has two aims: it seeks to provide up-to-date, practical information about using particular archives, and it seeks to provide a framework to share hard-won cataloguing detail with other researchers.
Practical guide to archivesEdit
Researchers share tips about accessing and using archives, as well as living near the archives on research trips. This archive template may be useful for those writing an entry from scratch.
Some archives make detailed catalogues available online, while the holdings of others are all but uncatalogued. Researchers often produced very detailed catalogues of the area of the catalogue that concerns them. This facility allows that hard work to be shared with others.
