As humanities research takes a notable material turn, museum and archive collections are increasingly recognised as important laboratories for original research. The outstanding resources found within the University of Reading's Museums and Special Collections also provide valuable assets for training in research methodologies and for the production of new knowledge around material cultures in a digital age.
