Lisa Munro, a recent Ph.D in Latin American history, has started what appears to be a great introduction to archival research for historians. (It is the first of a multi-post series at her blog).
Munro starts her series with four general tips:
- “Network early and often”
- “Do as much research ahead of time as possible”
- “Get a good camera”
- “Practice self-care
