Short talks on aspects of the British Library’s collections as a tribute to the late Philip Harris, historian of the British Museum Library. 

This seminar series concentrates on examining all aspects of the provision of libraries during all periods of history and all countries. Talks are based on substantial original research and are usually by established researchers; but we do encourage new students to present their research as well. The seminar can be found on Twitter @HistLibraries 

Most seminars will take place this session in the Warburg Institute, Woburn Square, London, WC1H 0AB, unless otherwise stated. All are welcome. 

Jointly sponsored by the Institute of English Studies, the Institute of Historical Research, the Warburg Institute, and the Library & Information History Group of CILIP.
