Direct experience

In 2006/07 a record number of students – 10,127 in all – attended our educational workshops, projects, events and study days. Students from City & Islington Sixth Form College, for example, came along for sessions on English literature, critical thinking skills and dialect study.

Melissa Marsh, a teacher at the college, comments: ‘The Library can be used in unexpected ways to foster learning. The sheer size of the collection forces students to think about research and information literacy skills, while the exhibition galleries help them to see books as artefacts with
specific historical and cultural contexts.’
