Spooky and one hopes eminently informative goings-on will be taking place at History Day on Halloween this year. Starting at 10:00 and finishing at 16:00 on Tuesday 31st October, the event is based at Senate House. Along with research clinics and panel sessions on digital history, public history and discovery in libraries and archives, we will have an expanded open history fair showcasing a veritable plethora of libraries, archives and organisations. Naturally, UCL Library Services will be represented, with colleagues from Special Collections, the Institute of Education, Huguenot and SSEES libraries staffing our stands, with the latter certainly getting into the swing of celebrating “all that is scary, eerie and magical in libraries and archives”.
Please alert anyone you feel may benefit from attending. The intended audience is really postgraduate students and early career researchers, however, undergraduates and many others with a general interest in history should certainly find the day illuminating and may make some useful contacts. Registration is necessary via book my free ticket.
