British Library Doctoral Students Open Days 2015

The British Library’s series of Open Days for new PhD students start this January.  Although your Doctoral Training Students may already have heard about the events (and hopefully booked!) we would be grateful if you could circulate this email, to ensure they don’t miss out.   You can see details all of the Open Days here.

The Open Days are designed to introduce new PhD students to the Library and students will learn about our collections, find out how to access them, and meet our expert staff as well as other researchers in their field. In addition to an understanding of the Library’s collections, the students gain a wider introduction to the information landscape in their field including research opportunities opening up in digital environment.  Each Open Day has a specific focus and students are encouraged to attend the event they feel is most relevant to their area of research.   The Music Day, for example may be relevant to anthropology students who could be interested in our pop and ethno musicological collections.   The Open Days are as follows:

English & Drama                                      – Monday 19 January

Digital Scholarship                                   – Friday 23 January

Music                                                        – Friday 30 January

Media, Cultural Studies and Journalism   – Friday 6 February

Art & Design                                             – Friday 6 February

History 2 (repeat of 1)                               –Friday 20 February

Asian & African Studies                            – Friday 27 February

Full details of all the Open Days, including how to book, are available on our website. Places cost £5.00 and this includes lunch.   Some of the events are fully booked or approaching capacity – if so students can register to go on a reserve list & will then be contacted directly when a place becomes available.
