Information for Students

The West Yorkshire Archive service welcomes students at all levels of study to book in and look at the records we hold. The records required by students can be quite specific and are often required for specific deadlines.

This page is here to give some guidance to students before they plan a visit to any of our five offices. The guidance has kindly been provided by a PhD student, Mark Butterfield, who has both accessed our records as a student and also worked with us on a placement.

His guide for students can be read in full here 

We also have a number of guides created specifically for courses at the University of Leeds, which we hope to add more to over time:

MA History of Health, Medicine and and Society Research guide

MA Medieval Studies WYAS Guide

MA Race and Resistance WYAS Research Guide

MA War and Strategy Research Guide
