    We have been asked to share the following information by Robin Saklatvala at the British Library.


    I am pleased to let you know that the British Library has scheduled another season of Doctoral Open Days in January and February 2020.

    We are circulating the dates of these now, so that you and your colleagues can include details in any induction pack / training being prepared for your new Doctoral Students.  The Box Office will open in mid-October and we will be in touch then with further details.

    Our Open Days are designed for first year PhD students who are new to the Library.  The days explain the practicalities of using the Library and its services – including navigating our physical and online collections. Students are encouraged to choose the event which is of most interest and relevance to their studies, from the following:


    Asian & African Collections                                                                 Monday 20 January

    Music Collections                                                                                Monday 27 January

    The Collections at Boston Spa … and beyond                                     Wednesday 29 January

    British & European Collections from Antiquity to 1600                     Monday 03 February

    British & European Collections after 1600                                         Monday 17 February

    Contemporary Society and Culture Collections                                 Monday 24 February

    The Americas Collections                                                                   Friday 28 February


    We hope you find this advance information useful and will be in touch again with full details of individual events and how to book, once the Box Office is open.


    With many thanks and best wishes,




    Robin Saklatvala
