The British Library is again running an Open Day for Doctoral Students interested in the Social Sciences. The event will take place on 12 February 2016.
The British Library’s 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, their 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 their 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 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, as these events are very popular, the organisers do encourage early booking.
