Exploring the potential: examining archived data at Mass Observation and ESDS Qualidata19-Jan-06The Library, University of Sussex

This one-day workshop, on Thursday 19 January 2006, aims to provide insight and practical advice on exploring and using archived qualitative materials held at Mass Observation and the UK Data Archive. It is jointly organised by ESDS Qualidata and the University of Sussex Library.

In the morning the archives' staff will present on the range of data available for research and how to access materials. A discussion on what users want from digital resources will follow, offering the opportunity for participant feedback. In the afternoon, speakers who have extensively used the archives for research will provide an overview of how they got started and issues they faced in confronting the materials.
