Practical and inspiring open days for first year PhD students
Our collection of books, manuscripts, periodicals, archives, electronic resources and visual arts material constitutes one of the world’s finest resources for the study of Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Covering hundreds of languages, the collection includes the earliest items in the British Library’s collections (oracle bones from Shang-dynasty China), and is continually being added to with new publications and acquisitions. Complementing these collections, the Library also holds sound recordings, maps, and other material from and relating to Asia and Africa.
At this event you will learn about the extraordinary scope of our African & Asian collections, and find out how to access them and unlock their potential to support your research. You will meet our expert staff and other researchers embarking on African & Asian Studies PhDs from different disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives.
