Historical Research: Databases for research in History and Archaeology

23 April 2013, 9am-5pm

Do you need to get your historical data properly organised? Should you be building a database to support your research? Not sure whether a database is for you?

If you are working in the area of History or Archaeology or related fields, this is a special opportunity to hear from experienced researchers about their work, and to learn from database specialists about designing and building your own database.

Dr Antony Buxton, tutor in design and domestic history at the Department of Continuing Education here at Oxford, will explain how he and others use computers for investigative reporting.  Ian Miller, from IT Services, will introduce the basic principles of computerised databases and importantly how to tailor the design for specific research projects.

During the workshop you will have the opportunity to create a simple database and analyse historical data.  There will be database experts on hand to offer assistance and they will be happy to discuss any database development you are doing.
