How do we discover information? And how do we know we are asking the right questions to find the information that we need? Dive into the cycle of  knowledge and research with us as we explore these ideas at the British Library.

This activity-led workshop uses Library collection items and an exploration of our building to spark learners’ curiosity, as they unpack the different stages of research. The session spans investigation, observation, questioning and source analysis, and groups will explore how to organise their findings as they analyse and build on their knowledge. At the end of their investigations, learners will consider how to share their new-found knowledge in a format of their choice.
