British Library’s Asian & African Collections Doctoral Open Day

Research students can now book their place on the British Library’s Asian & African Collections Doctoral Open Day. The event will take place on 20 January 2020 and is designed to explain the practicalities of using the Library and its services, plus help new PhD students navigate the physical and online collections.

Overall 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, our collections cover a wide range of formats and languages spanning the last 3,000 years.

Each day concentrates on a different aspect of the Library’s collections and most take an inter-disciplinary approach.  As well as hearing from expert and friendly staff, students will have the opportunity to meet researchers in all disciplines. Students are welcome to choose the day they feel is most relevant to their studies.

 

For details of all the Open Days and how to book please see the website. Places cost £10.00 including lunch. Numbers are limited and, as these events are very popular, we do encourage early booking.
