the British Library is again running a series of Open Days for Doctoral Students, running from December 2018 – March 2019.
The British Library Doctoral Open Days are a chance for PhD students who are new to the Library to learn how to make the most of the Library’s research materials, get to grips with the practicalities of using the Library and its services, and find out how to navigate their physical and online collections. They are also a great opportunity to meet our expert and friendly staff and other researchers from all disciplines.
Each day concentrates on a different aspect of the Library’s collections and most take an inter-disciplinary approach. Students are invited to choose the day they feel is most relevant to their studies.
All events take place in the British Library Knowledge Centre at St Pancras, London, except for the event on Wednesday 30 January 2019, which takes place at the Library’s site in Boston Spa, Yorkshire. This event is suitable for researchers of all disciplines and subject areas as speakers will also provide an overarching introduction to the Library that will be of interest to anyone planning to explore our collections for PhD research – whether that is in Yorkshire, in London or online.
For further details of the all Open Days and how to book please see the British Library website. Places cost £10.00 including lunch and refreshments.
