What’s the British Library? What’s in the collection? How can I find what I need? Join them for a series of online webinars to pick up the basics and find out how to kick off your research.

The British Library houses a wealth of resources for doctoral researchers, both digital and physical. In early 2021 they will be offering all first-year PhD researchers the opportunity to hear from their expert staff with a series of free online webinars, explaining the practicalities of using the Library and its services, with an increased focus on digital collections and resources.

The webinars will take place every Wednesday afternoon between 14 January and 3 March 2021, starting with a general introduction followed by events exploring more specific collection areas.

Attend the first module Getting Started: Researching at the British Library on 14 January, then book your place on any of the other modules that interest you. All modules are free to attend.

The complete programme, and links to register, can be found on the British Library website.
