Practical and inspiring open days for first year PhD students
The British Library is home to a vast array of news and media content across all formats. Our extensive newspaper and magazine collection covers international, national and local publications from the 17th century to the present day. The British Library sound archive has millions of historic and contemporary recordings of speech, music, wildlife and the environment. Our online Web Archive provides permanent online access to key UK websites of cultural or scholarly importance, while our onsite Legal Deposit Web Archive has every UK website available since 2013, including news sites. Our Reading Rooms provide access to tens of thousands of TV and radio programmes broadcast in the UK since May 2010. At this event researchers will learn about the full scope of these collections and how to unlock their potential as primary sources. They will also have an opportunity to meet expert staff and other researchers across a range of disciplines and subject areas.
