New PhD Researchers may be interested in the following development opportunities:
The Researcher KnowHow team are offering a range of online webinars this Autumn from ‘Copyright and your thesis’ to ‘Choosing the right journal ‘ and ‘ Planning and doing a search for your systematic review ‘. See the library calendar from more details and links to register. Places are limited.
In light of the ongoing pandemic, the British Library have had to make significant changes to the Library’s established series of Doctoral Open Days and are now looking forward to engaging with new researchers in a different, but nonetheless engaging and inspirational way.
In early 2021 they will be offering all first-year PhD students the opportunity to hear from expert staff via a programme of free online webinars, which will explain the practicalities of using the Library and its services, with increased focus on our digital collections and resources.
The webinars will take place every Wednesday afternoon between 14 January and 3 March 2021, starting with a first general introduction and followed by additional events exploring more specific collection areas.
They strongly recommend that all interested PhD students attend the first module Getting Started: Researching at the British Library on 14 January. Students are then welcome to join as many of the other modules as they are interested in. All modules are free to attend.
