British Library PGR Open Days

The British Library is running a series of Open Days for Doctoral Students, taking place in January, February and March 2017.

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 British Library’s 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 the physical and online collections.

As well as hearing from the library’s expert and friendly staff, students will have the opportunity to meet researchers in all disciplines. Each day concentrates on a different aspect of the library’s collections and most take an inter-disciplinary approach.
