We have developed a series of new teaching and learning resources to help students in higher education engage with our historic Collections. These resources are the latest additions to a broader package of higher education resources.
If you’re a student undertaking your first research project, check out our Getting started with research resource with step-by-step advice on planning, starting and carrying out your project.
If your research will focus on material from archives, the resource on Getting started with archival research has additional advice on how to search catalogues, where to find relevant material, and how to prepare for your first day at the archives. You can also learn how to search use the Society’s own Collections more effectively in our hints and tips for searching and using the Society’s Collections and our guide on how to use the Wiley Digital Archives.
You can now also watch two recent Be Inspired talks, where researchers share new perspectives on the Society’s Collections. The first, by Collaborative Doctoral Award student George Tobin (University of Glasgow), focuses on the relief models of Sir Laurence Dudley Stamp, former President of the Society and director of the Land Utilisation Survey of Britain.
The second looks at Animals in the Royal Geographical Society’s archives, with 2021 Wiley Digital Archives Fellow Dr Catherine Oliver (University of Cambridge) reinterpreting the role of animals in geography through stories of work, companionship, conflict, and discovery.
You can browse the resources at the links below and see our full range of higher education resources here.
