Making the most of parliamentary and government papers in your research

Tracking down parliamentary papers whether historic or contemporary is difficult, partly because you need to use a range of databases and finding aids and partly because the materials themselves can be tricky to use.

Next week the Bodleian Libraries’ Official Papers Librarian will be running an introductory workshop for those using UK parliamentary and government papers in their research. The session will cover both historical and contemporary government and parliamentary papers, and is aimed at those who are new to using these complex materials. However, it will also make an excellent refresher for anyone already using these materials who is struggling with the range of finding aids or trying to track down elusive documents.

The session will take place on Wednesday 19 October 10.00-11.30. Please book your place online.  If you are unable to book online please contact
