What is the British Library? What’s in the collection? And how can I find what I need? Join us for a series of webinars to learn how to kick off your research.  Our online Doctoral Open Days will be followed by two on site orientation days at the Library in St Pancras.

Pick up the basics with our introductory webinar, and then choose from a range of modules, each introducing an area of our collection so you can focus on what will be relevant to you.

All online sessions take place on Wednesday afternoons between 12 January and 2 March 2022.  You will then be invited to join us onsite  on 4 or 7 March 2022, and more information will be circulated in February.

All events in the series are free, and you can join as many as you like. In fact, we recommend you do because you never know what you might find. Please book in advance, as places are limited.

What to expect

The webinars offer a combination of live and pre-recorded presentations. The pre-recorded presentations will be available to you in advance so you can watch at your leisure. Each live module will then focus on a specific collection area and give you the opportunity to talk directly with our curators and your fellow researchers in interactive discussion groups.
