The British Library has a series of free training days for postgraduates, which we thought would be of interest to you. The days are designed to introduce the Library’s collections and services to first year postgraduate research students to raise awareness of how they can use the Library throughout their research career.

This year we will be running seven days in a range of subjects including two History days.


11 Oct – Social Science: Research about Societies

19 Oct – Social Science: Government, Politics and Legal Studies

25 Oct – Art and Design 6 Dec – History (Medieval – 18th C)
