British Library PG open days 2011-12

Posted on Updated on

Each year the British Library runs a series of training days for new doctoral researchers in English, History and Social Sciences.

These specially tailored days of talks, workshops, discussions and networking opportunities combine a general introduction to the Library and services with specialised sessions.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about the diversity of the British Library collections, from oral history recordings to modern literary manuscripts and ephemera. Meet our expert curators and other researchers in your field.
