Latin American Archives and Collections in the British Library, Senate House Library and the People’s History Museum

PILAS, the British Library, the University of London Senate House Library and the People’s History Museum are pleased to announce a free interactive (bring laptops and tablets) workshop on Latin American archives and collections in the UK.

The workshop will be on March 14th 2018 from 10.30 to 17.00 at the People’s History Museum in Manchester (www.phm.org.uk) and will provide the opportunity for postgraduate researchers to discuss with archivists and curators how to get the most out of archives. **Bring your laptops and tablets**

Priority will be given to those who cannot claim travel bursaries from other sources. You can apply for a flat-rate travel and lunch bursary here: https://goo.gl/forms/K9DEpUv3rX9PZzbz1.
