Social Science blog

Exploring Social Science at the British Library

The Social Science Blog highlights collections, resources, project work, events, and exhibitions in the Library relevant to research in the social sciences (including, but not limited to politics, economics, sociology, law, cultural and media studies). It is edited by curators in Contemporary British Collections, but its scope is not limited to social sciences in a British context. The blog includes guest posts relevant to the Library's collections and work.   If you would like to discuss writing a guest post about Library resources, events or exhibitions, please contact [email protected] .

You can find out more about materials relevant to the social sciences and useful resources on the social sciences collection guide.

There are also subject-focused resources developed in partnership with research and practitioner communities:
