Suvir Kaul: researching the impact of empire
'I'm Suvir Kaul, a visiting academic from the University of Pennsylvania and I've spent the last academic year here working on a book project on the impact of empire on the literary imagination in 18th century Britain.
I have, for the most part, used the Rare Books Room and it has been an extraordinary experience, not simply because of the resources that are available here but because of the quality of the librarians who make those resources available to scholars. I cannot imagine a better place in which to work and I don't know of any comparable institutions anywhere in the world.
I do hope this Library maintains its standards in the years to come.'
