British Library Doctoral Open Day

Event Date: 
21 Jan 2019

the British Library is running a Doctoral Open Day for research students interested in our 17th & 18th Century Collections. The event will take place on 21 January 2019 and is designed to explain the practicalities of using the Library and its services, plus help new PhD students navigate our physical and online collections. 

 

Overall Our 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, our 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 new PhD students navigate our physical and online collections.

 

Each day concentrates on a different aspect of the Library’s collections and most take an inter-disciplinary approach. As well as hearing from our 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 all Open Days and how to book please see our website. Places costs £10.00 including lunch. Numbers are limited and, as these events are very popular, we do encourage early booking.
