British Library Doctoral Open Day: Digital Research

Over the last two decades the British Library has become a vast resource not only of physical objects, but of digital items. These data range from digitised text, sound, visual, and philatelic material, to born-digital collections of personal archives and web content. These data are transforming research, with new tools and computational techniques generating new discoveries and new understanding in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.

This event is a chance for PhD students to explore digital research methods and how they might be applied to the British Library’s digital collections. It’s a chance to experiment, learn about interesting research projects, and discuss the ways that using digital sources might affect your research. You’ll meet expert staff and network with other researchers from across the UK.

The event is aimed at first year PhD students, or doctoral students who are new to digital research. Lunch and refreshments are included.

To make the most of your day, you may wish to get a free Reader Pass before the event.

A small number of £20 travel bursaries are available from the British Library for students coming from outside Greater London. Email to apply
