The Box Office for the British Library Doctoral Open Days (https://www.bl.uk/events/doctoral-open-days-explore-our-research-collections) 2020 has now opened.
These Open Days are designed for first year PhD students who are new to the Library, offering the opportunity to hear from our expert and friendly staff students and network with their peers, in all disciplines and from across the UK. These days explain the practicalities of using the Library and its services – including navigating our physical and online collections. Each day will present generic tools and helpful hints, with reference to a different thematic area or time period of the Library’s collection, providing a starting point for the Student’s own research at the Library. As such students are encouraged to choose the event they feel is of most interest and relevance to their studies, from the options below:
