What is your experience of using archives?

An appeal from Masters student Mary Arnold, currently studying on the Genealogical Studies postgraduate programme at the University of Strathclyde (

I am undertaking research for a university qualification: an MSc in Genealogical, Palaeographic & Heraldic Studies at the University of Strathclyde, and I wish to find out about the type of experience you have had when using and accessing archives.

The survey will not take long to complete, please feel free to forward this link to as many of your fellow researchers as you like. Thank you in advance for completing the survey, your thoughts and comments are valuable and will help towards a greater understanding between archives and users.

If you have any questions regarding this survey please contact me at:
