Our Training and Resources

We offer a range of training opportunities. You can find out about our current events on the Events & Events Archive tab.

We have an annual conference. You can see details of past conferences on the tabs to the left.

We have online identification films designed to help you identify tools in your collection. You can find these under Identification Films. 

We also offer Object Lesson boxes, designed to help you develop your skills and confidence in identifying and caring for core materials found in social history collections.

Elsewhere on our website you can find firstBASE, an online, searchable database of useful resources relating to a whole range of subjects, themes and objects dealt with by those who work with local and social history collections.
