British Library Doctoral Open Day 29 January 2018

November 14, 2017

British Library Doctoral Open Day – Social Sciences
The British Library is again running an Open Day for Doctoral Students interested in their Social Sciences Collections. The event will take place on 29 January 2018 and is designed to explain the practicalities of using the Library and its services, plus help new PhD students navigate the physical and online collections.

Overall 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. Each day concentrates on a different aspect of the Library’s collections and most take an inter-disciplinary approach.  As well as hearing from 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 the British Library website. Places cost £10.00 including lunch. Numbers are limited and early booking is encouraged.
