To mark the launch of the new ‘FOI intelligence and security archival collection’ at the University of Salford, Dr Chris Murphy and Dr Dan Lomas will discuss their use of Freedom of Information (FOI) legislation during their research into British intelligence and security history. They will be joined by Mr Ian Johnston, the University’s Archives & Special Collections Co-ordinator. Ian will be able to answer questions about access to the new collection, and associated opportunities for researchers from across the social sciences and humanities, while Chris and Dan will be able to offer practical tips and advice to those thinking of making an FOI request, based on their own experiences.
The event will be held at the University of Salford’s MediaCity Campus (Room 3.10/3.11) and will be accompanied by a reception.
