Roly Keating and Prof. Rocky Ralebipi-Simela sign the MOU between the British Library and the National Library of South Africa.
We engage with regions of the world whose cultures and histories are strongly reflected in our collections.
Partnerships and our collections
Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs)
We have signed Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) with a number of national libraries, including:
- South Africa
These agreements help us to work collaboratively on a range of initiatives, such as the project set out in our MOU with China to digitise our collection of Shang dynasty oracle bones.
Skills and knowledge exchange
Our many initiatives to share and exchange skills internationally are demonstrated by the Two-Centuries of Indian Print project. As part of this project we will deliver digital skills workshops and training sessions at Indian institutions to support innovative research within South Asian studies.
