British Library Doctoral Open Day: Music, Sound and Vision Collections 

The British Library would like to invite you to the next exciting Doctoral Open Day onsite at St Pancras, London.

Music, Sound and Vision Collections (1 September 2023)

Several million items of printed music, original manuscripts, private papers, sound and spoken word recordings and moving news images in our collection span all genres from Purcell to Panufnik, and from Punk to Pop. Learn more about how this vast collection can aid your research not just in music, but in anthropology, history and culture.

Our annual series of Doctoral Open Days offer PhD students the chance to discover our research resources and explore the practicalities of using the Library. This hybrid programme of online and in-person events and resources are designed to support students in navigating the Library’s vast and varied physical and digital collections, introduce them to expert staff, and provide the opportunities to meet other researchers. These days are aimed at first-year doctoral students, but those in other years who want to increase their knowledge of The British Library and its collections are also very welcome!

Please note, sessions are not hybrid: if you are not able to attend in person, by signing up you will gain access to a whole host of recorded and related materials.
