The Science, Technology and Medicine Team at the British Library has three main functions:

  • Collection development – we are responsible for developing and maintaining the science, technology and medicine collections, encompassing both print and electronic resources across all science subjects.
  • Engaging with researchers – as well as holding a variety of events aimed at the scientific research community, we conduct a range of studies to understand our users and their information requirements.
  • Developing products and services – we are developing innovative information products and services for researchers.

Details of our activities are available on our website.
