We support and stimulate research of all kinds.
One of the founding principles of the British Library was to put the UK’s formidable national library collections at the service of research and innovation of all kinds. The goal then, as now, was to support the creation of new and open knowledge, across the fullest possible range of disciplines, from science and the social sciences to arts and humanities, as well as the vital interdisciplinary work that often yields the truest innovation.
- make it easier for more people to access the collection, with online registration, improved search and increased volumes of research content available online
- help people, including those less experienced or confident, to use the information they need
- increase our support for scientists and the public understanding of science, including the development of our St Pancras site as a major centre for life science and data science research
- develop and implement a new AI Strategy and Ethical Guide to support the next generation of our digital research.
