British LibraryEnhance your conference experience by going behind the scenes at one of London’s iconic libraries on the morning after Internet Librarian International on Thursday 17 October. This year delegates will have the chance to visit The British Library. Places are free of charge but strictly limited and available on a first-come first-served basis. The visit list will be closed once all available places are booked.

Places are only open to ILI delegates and bookings can only be made as part of the delegate booking process - register for the visit by ticking the relevant box when you book your delegate place. The visit is a free add-on for delegates at the Internet Librarian International conference and does not form part of the main conference.

Please note you will be responsible for your own transport arrangements to the British Library. It is easy to reach in Central London and is well served with public transport links.

Its treasures include Magna Carta, the Lindisfarne Gospels, Leonardo da Vinci’s Notebook, and Beatles manuscripts. The Library is located in London’s ‘Knowledge Quarter’, not far from the British Museum.
