Visitor research and focus groups
As we develop new exhibitions, it is important that we find out what our audiences think about the plans. Find out more about our visitor research and focus groups.
Steve Slack facilitating a focus group at the British Library
Exhibitions are an important part of the the British Library’s public programme. We regularly conduct qualitative evaluation at key stages to ensure that we continue to produce first-class exhibitions that are highly appealing.
As we develop new exhibitions, it is important that we find out what our audiences think about the plans. Similarly, once an exhibition has opened we need to find out how effectively that exhibition has engaged our visitors. To help us learn more from our visitors, external consultants are sometimes commissioned to facilitate focus groups with members of the public to help us gather useful feedback.
