Welcoming your new students - a message for teaching staff

We’re always keen to further promote the use of the collections within the Institute of Commonwealth Studies Library, as well as related collections within Senate House Library and the Institute of Historical Research.

With the start of a new academic year we're keen to hear how we could work with you to help your students exploit resources held here. We are happy to arrange induction tours and training sessions for groups of students, and if you are interested, please do get in touch.

We are also interested in providing workshops on specific resources or primary sources – we have strong archive collections for example on slavery and on pre- and post-independence politics in the Caribbean, on apartheid era Southern Africa, and on areas such as freedom of the press, and would be pleased to work with you to help student explore and understand the use of archival sources.

We would also welcome any general comments on information training needs and how we could contribute to meet these needs; as well as any other general comments and feedback.

Individual research consultations are available for postgraduate research students – these may be especially useful for students starting PhDs.

Please respond by email to david.clover@london.ac.uk
