This Digital Scholarships event is solely for first-year PhD students who are new to the Library
Over the last two decades British Library has increasingly become a place full of not just physical objects, but of digital content. These data range from digitised text, sound, visual, and philatelic material, to born-digital collections of personal archives and web content. These data are transforming research, with new tools and computational techniques generating new discoveries and new understanding in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
Our Doctoral Open Days are a chance for new PhD students to discover the British Library’s research materials. You will learn about our digital collections, find out ways of working with them, and meet our expert staff and other researchers in the field of digital research. The events are solely for first year PhD students who are new to the Library. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.To make the most of your day, you may wish to get a free Reader Pass before the event.
