British Library Doctoral Open Day: 17th & 18th Century Collections, 19 February 2016

The British Library’s Open Day for Doctoral Students interested in the 17th and 18th Century Collections is taking place on 19 February 2016.

The Doctoral Open Days are a chance for PhD students who are new to the Library to discover the British Library’s unique research materials. From newspapers to maps, datasets to manuscripts, ships’ logs to websites, the collections cover a wide range of formats and languages spanning the last 3,000 years. Doctoral Open Days are designed to explain the practicalities of using the Library and its services, plus help students navigate the physical and online collections.

Each day concentrates on a different aspect of the Library’s collections and they take an inter-disciplinary approach.  As well as hearing from their expert and friendly staff students will have the opportunity to meet researchers in all disciplines. Students are welcome to choose the day they feel is most relevant to their studies.

For details of the all Open Days and how to book please see their website. Places cost £5.00 including lunch. Numbers are limited and pre-booking is required.
