British Library Postgraduate Open Days: History 4 Nov. & 10 Feb. 2012

  From the British Library:

“New PhD students from across the UK are invited to attend a specially tailored day of talks, workshops and networking opportunities at the British Library, focusing on your research subject.

Each day includes a general introduction to relevant research sources, curator talks and workshops, and details on how to get a Reader Pass. To ensure the days are accessible to research postgraduates from across the UK, students from outside London may apply for a limited number of £30 travel bursaries.

Aims of the Open Days:

  • To introduce you to the range of research materials available in the British Library
  • To offer special curator sessions and workshops in a range of topics
  • To show you how to access the catalogues, and carry out bibliographic research on your topic
  • To introduce you to specialist curators at the Library
  • To give you an opportunity to network with postgraduate students from other universities across the UK
  • The day will contribute to national subject-specific and generic research skills training

Due to high demand, places are limited to first-year PhD students. The days are extremely popular so please let us know if you are unable to attend; we will contact your university if you do not inform us in advance.”
