The History of History Day


History Day Archive: This is the very first History Day in 2014.


History libraries and research open day was first held on the 18th of March, 2014. As seen in the photograph here, the open fair and the talks were held in a single room in Senate House. The response was positive and a second day was held in Beveridge Hall on the 20th of January 2015, with the next History Day on the 27th of November 2015. The event has since been fixed each year in November. The event name has since been shortened to History Day.




You can find details about past History Days in this archive, as well as links to posts and podcasts of training sessions. Many libraries and archives have prepared blog posts describing their collections and how they can support researchers. These posts are available on this website to help you prepare for your visit to the next History Day or to start your research project.
