Workshop: Introduction to Archival Research

Wednesday February 7, 2024 6-8 PM
E.P. Taylor Library & Archives, Art Gallery of Ontario

Join the AGO’s archivists for an approachable workshop that will introduce participants to the basics of archival research. Find out what’s in archival collections, how to start your research project, and what to expect from a visit to the archives. This workshop is open to all, including students, artists, independent researchers, and the archives-curious. 

Participants can get advice about a current project, but no particular research focus is required. To participate in the hands-on portion of the workshop, please bring a laptop or tablet for searching our collections.  The collections database isn't ideally configured for mobile devices.

 

Al Stanton-Hagan is the AGO Archivist, where they collect, maintain, and provide access to the records of the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Amy Marshall Furness is the Rosamond Ivey Special Collections and Archivist and Head, Library & Archives at the AGO, where she leads the collection development and public programs of the E.P. Taylor Library & Archives.

For requests for Verbal Description, American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and/or live captioning for online and onsite programming, please provide three weeks notice in advance of the event date. The AGO will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made with less than three weeks notice. Please note that automated captioning is available for all online programs. For onsite visits, the AGO offers these supports for an accessible visit. Please contact us to make a request for these or other accessibility accommodations.
