The Archive runs exhibitions and has an engaging and interactive website to make Booth’s papers more accessible, raise their awareness, and engage visitors in social and economic history.
Also, most of the Archive’s collection is digitised which not only provides access to a wider audience but also encourages greater interaction with the sources. Visitors can compare Booth’s maps with those of London today, tracing the change and development that have taken place in the city over the centuries.
Search functions, references to Booth’s respective notes and detailed descriptions mean visitors can follow their own interests. The collection also demonstrates how data used to be collected and how new methodologies and techniques in the social sciences developed at the time.
