While I’m a busy bee today, improving each shining hour, I’ll leave you with an interesting series of posts by Notorious Girl, Ph.D., who took some time out from her work in Exotic Research City to write a little primer on A Day in the Archives, Part I and Part II. These might be especially useful for graduate students considering with trepidation their first trip to the archives for seminar paper or dissertation research. Notorious reports that she’s planning a Part III, after a little fun break with a pal from back home. Dance at Prone to Laughter posted a response with a little mystery document from her collection–click on the photo to enlarge, and don’t read the comments until after you’ve puzzled through it!
As you all know, Historiann insists on archival research. Don’t let me catch any of you submitting dissertation chapters that don’t include archival work, friends! And an archivist named Jacob who blogs at Jacobpedia has already jumped into the old Sister Agnes thread–his blog is worth checking out.
