To support the growth of their postgraduate programmes the British Library is looking to understand postgraduate students’ views on a new range of training concepts that the Library could deliver. These concepts will be aimed at helping to improve postgraduate students’ research skills.

DJSResearchThe British Library has commissioned DJS Research Ltd, an independent market research agency to conduct the research and they will be running a series of focus groups in order to shed light on the above.

In order to participate, all you need to do at this point is meet the following criteria:

  • You must be a non-user of the British Library (i.e. not physically visited the Library for research purposes or used its online resources)
  • You will preferably be on a research MA/MSc or PhD
  • You will be studying either a Social Science and Arts and Humanities or Science subject

All participants will receive £40 cash as a thank you for taking part and the focus groups will last around 1.5 hours.

We anticipate a lot of interest in this project and so will be recruiting on a first come first served basis due to the limited number of places available. If you are interested then please reply by email in the first instance to Hannah Brearley, Senior Recruiter at DJS Research – – and she will arrange the specifics.
