Placements at the British Library provide opportunities for PhD students from all disciplines to develop and apply transferable research skills outside of the university sector. They support the professional development of researchers for future career paths both within and outside academia. Placement projects are hosted both by specialist curatorial teams and by staff working in areas such as research engagement, digital scholarship, corporate affairs and public policy.
