One of our team recently had the chance to visit the British Library at Boston Spa, and take a tour of the site. Many researchers are probably familiar with the services offered by the British Library – digitisation and reading rooms being obvious examples – but this was a more ‘behind the scenes’ look at what happens at the Yorkshire site.
We don’t get to mess around with crafts enough in the Research team, so when the All Staff Event for library staff required teams to make posters we jumped in with scissors, glue, and lots of black pens. We played around with photoshopping, drew tiny pigeons, and measured very (VERY) precisely in order to create our research ‘advent calendar’ which you can now see in all its glory:
Hopefully we’ll get the chance to do more creative things like this to share research support more often!
